About the disease

If the muscle tissue of the heart thins up to 1-3 mm in the area of acute myocardial infraction, this area ceases to contract and “explodes” under the blood pressure.  Muscle tissue thinning and weakening occurs due to its necrosis. It is replaced with connective tissue that cannot contract. The condition affects only the anterior part of the heart and its apex. It is a serious heart disease causing impaired circulation. The condition is five times more common in males. The pathology requires surgical treatment. 

If not treated, patients with left ventricular aneurysm die within 2-3 years. The good news is that their life can be prolonged only with surgical treatment. Nevertheless, there is also some risk. In elderly patients anaesthesia can be a contraindication to surgery. Some patients are refused to be treated with surgery because of chronic diseases. If surgery is not performed, the protrusion area will grow, the patient’s quality of life will get worse and the risk of severe complications will increase. 

Symptoms 

The condition has the following symptoms:

  • Murmur in the apex of the heart
  • Tissue swelling
  • Shortness of breath with signs of choking even after slight physical load
  • Heart arrhythmia 

Diagnosis 

The treatment of left ventricular aneurysm requires the most accurate diagnosis. To determine the severity of the disease, the specialists use echo- and electrocardiography. These tests also help to identify the structure of the protrusion, its exact location and size.  

  • Radiography can determine changes in the heart size and a risk of pulmonary edema.
  • Introduction of isotopes to determine the location of the condition, its size, contraction at rest and during physical exercises. 
  • Contrast-enhanced MRI is an important informative diagnostic method, on which a choice of surgical technique is based. 
  • Ultrasound is used for an accurate imaging of the protrusion area and determining of cardiac muscle thinning level.

Treatment  

  • Coronary artery bypass surgery and left ventricular aneurysm repair. This surgery involves the resection of the explosion area from other heart muscles. The tissues that function properly are sutured. Then a mesh of synthetic material is applied to that area to support the form of the left ventricle. It serves to prevent thinning and recurrence of aneurysm. The treatment of left ventricular aneurysm abroad involves the use of the techniques that aim to restore both volume and shape of the left ventricle, as well as to reshape the heart. During the surgery specialists use a cardiopulmonary bypass. Such complex interventions can be performed only by experienced and highly qualified cardiac surgeons.
