Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Apical aneurysms are outpouchings of the left ventricular apex that are relatively common in patients with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with midventricular obstruction. Apical aneurysms have been associated with ventricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death, but surgical resection may reduce the risks of these complications. In this tutorial, we describe resection of a left ventricular apical aneurysm in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and midventricular obstruction.
