Abstract

The term "subannular" left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) implies that the aneurysm's origin is very close to the aorta. In the absence of an infective etiology, subannular LVAs are very rare among Caucasians. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. We present the case of a patient with a subannular LVA who underwent surgery at our Institution.
