Abstract

Cardiac aneurysm occurring in ventricles is usually a complication of acute transmural myocardial infarction. The development of cardiac aneurysm represents a process of continued thinning and fibrosis of the necrotic tissue of the ventricular wall. Survival of the person without any complication depends on the development of the solid fibrous scar, which seals the aneurysmal cavity.We present an incidental case wherein a person survived with a ventricular aneurysm that sealed itself by natural means due to the development of a thrombus and fibrous tissue offering a natural protection. The person died because of head injury in a road traffic accident in this particular case.
