Abstract [en]

A 70-year old lady with prior myectomy for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy presented with sustained ventricular tachycardia. She was found to have a large left ventricular (LV) apical aneurysm. Surgical intervention was not advised, due to the risk of creating a small LV cavity after surgery and ICD was not advised based on the risk of injuring a very thin walled aneurysm. The patient's arrhythmia settled on medical therapy, but unfortunately she suffered an unwitnessed death three months later.

This case represents a rare complication to a rare disease with limited management options. In such patients evidence based medicine is of little help, if any.
