Abstract

There are many known complications of implantable cardioverter- defibrillator placement. We treated a patient in whom a left ventricular pseudoaneurysm developed secondary to epicardial patch electrode placement and cardioverter-defibrillator implantation. The presenting symptoms, diagnostic evaluation, and surgical repair are described.
