Özet

A 70-year-old man was admitted to our coronary care unit with severe dyspnea, nonproductive cough, and palpitations 1 month after an inferoposterolateral myocardial infarction. Two-dimensional echocardiography demonstrated severe left ventricular dysfunction and a large (6.6 x 7.9 cm) inferoposterior wall pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle with a thrombus (Fig, 1). Electrocardiography showed QS formation in leads II, III, aVF, and V-5,V-6; Rs in V-1; and sustained ventricular tachycardia (Fig. 2).
