A 38-year-old man presented with exertional angina of 1-year duration. Treadmill was strongly positive. Coronary angiogram revealed a significant phasic systolic compression of the left main and the proximal left circumflex artery. Echo and MRI revealed a subaortic left ventricle diverticulum causing compression of the coronary vessels. Before the planned surgery, the patient had sudden deterioration with cardiogenic shock and could not be saved.

Congenital left ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac anomaly. During the newborn period, symptomatic patients are diagnosed with heart failure findings. We present a 23-day-old male newborn with congenital left ventricular diverticulum diagnosed during fetal echocardiographic examination. After the birth, the patient had heart failure symptoms and his echocardiographic examination showed low cardiac ejection fraction. Diverticulum was operated with endoventricular circular patch plasty (DOR) technique, and after, cardiopulmonary bypass venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support was performed because of low cardiac output syndrome...

Congenital ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac anomaly defined as a localized protrusion of the ventricular free wall. Although, it is usually asymptomatic, complications such as embolism, infective endocarditis, and arrhythmias can occur. The diagnosis can be made by echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, or catheter angiography. Surgical resection is the treatment of choice in symptomatic patients, whereas the management of asymptomatic patients often represents a therapeutic dilemma...

BACKGROUND: Isolated left ventricular apical hypoplasia with several different unrecognized dimensions is a newly discovered congenital anomaly of the heart. CASE REPORT: In this report, we describe a case of cardiomyopathy of this type occurring in a 13-year-old male with a history of mental retardation and sudden cardiac death (SCD) of second-degree relatives. The patient was referred for an evaluation of cardiac status. An echocardiography analysis demonstrated a spherical left ventricle (LV) appearance with mild mitral regurgitation...

Congenital left ventricular diverticulum is an extremely rare heart defect. Here, we report a case of successful endoventriculoplasty using a Dacron patch in an infant who was followed up for one year.

A 64-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with palpitation and exertional dyspnea. An electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm, but supraventricular tachycardia was recorded on Holter monitoring. Multidetector computed tomography revealed a small left ventricular outpouching in the apex, with a narrow connection to the ventricle and normal coronary arteries. Surgery for the left ventricular pouch was performed successfully. Histological examination demonstrated that the left ventricular diverticulum consisted of three layers of the ventricular wall, with the myocardial layer mostly replaced by fibrous tissue...

The clinic symptoms of cardiac occupying lesions are complex and difficult to diagnose currently. In this study, three cases of atrial angiosarcoma, left ventricular aneurysm and left ventricular diverticulum were selected, respectively. The clinical characteristics, imaging features (echocardiogram, cardiac CT and MRI) and the postoperative and pathological results for patients were studied. We compared the differences in clinical symptoms, morphology, histology and haemodynamics among the three patients. The diagnosis were confirmed by intraoperative and postoperative pathological examination...

The use of modern cardiac imaging techniques suggests that congenital ventricular diverticulum (CVD) may be more common than generally believed and may present asymptomatically in adult life. We present a case of congenital left ventricular diverticulum diagnosed in a patient presenting with myocardial infarction (MI). The case highlights the importance of the differential diagnosis of CVD from post infarct left ventricular aneurysms (PILVA) and suggests that adult studies using modern imaging techniques are needed to define the prognosis for asymptomatic CVD in order to guide management...

Isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac malformation. Here, we report the case of a 33-year-old woman who had suffered from recurrent transient ischemic attacks for 6 years. Preoperative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography angiography revealed a diverticulum near the apex. The diverticulum was successfully obliterated by cardiopulmonary bypass. We suggest that isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum can be easily corrected with a low surgical risk by patch repair and plication techniques...

A 43-year-old woman presented to the emergency room with a sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT). ECG showed a QRS in left bundle branch block morphology with inferior axis. Echocardiography, ventricular angiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) revealed a normal right ventricle and a left ventricular diverticulum. Electrophysiology studies with epicardial voltage mapping identified a large fibrotic area in the inferolateral layer of the right ventricular wall and a small area of fibrotic tissue at the anterior right ventricular outflow tract...

Congenital left ventricular diverticulum (LVD) is a rare abnormality of the myocardium which has been detected previously in the fetus. Lesions have been reported from as early as 12 weeks' gestation but are more commonly detected in the mid-second trimester. Fetal presentation of LVD ranges from an abnormal four-chamber view of the heart, arrhythmia or isolated pericardial effusion to fetal hydrops with associated heart failure. Here, we describe the prenatal diagnosis of an infant with LVD originating from the left ventricular outflow tract associated with coarctation of the aorta...

Congenital left ventricular outpouchings (LVOs) are infrequent myocardial malformations, comprising various overlapping abnormalities, whose characterization is often intricate in clinical practice using traditional non-invasive techniques. We describe a rare case of LVO associated with bicuspid aortic valve incidentally found in an asymptomatic adult patient. The LVO was located at basal level of the chamber, crescent-shaped with its largest diameter in short-axis view and presented a thin hypo-contractile wall without hyperintense areas on late gadolinium enhanced (LGE) images...

Congenital ventricular diverticulum is a rare and usually asymptomatic cardiac malformation which can cause major complications such as systemic thromboembolism, infective endocarditis, cardiac rupture, heart failure, arrhythmia and sudden death. We present a case with multiple congenital left ventricular diverticulum admitted to hospital with sudden onset right-sided hemiplegia and dysarthria.

Cantrell syndrome includes the defects of the heart, pericardium, diaphragm, abdominal wall, and sternum. The operative mortality is usually high. We report here a one-stage surgical correction in a case of Cantrell syndrome with left ventricular diverticulum.
