Received 23 January 2018; received in revised form 2 March 2018; accepted 14 March 2018 Keywords: Myocardial infarction • Aneurysm • Thrombus Figure 1: (A–C) A 69-year-old man underwent an elective percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). (D) As the thickness of the left ventricular anterior wall gradually increased to 60 mm within 1 year of follow-up, the patient underwent ventricular restoration as described by Dor (Dor V, Saab M, Coste P, Kornaszewska M, Montiglio F. Left ventricular aneurysm: new surgical approach. Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 1989;37:11–19). (E) The thrombus was conﬁrmed by histopathology. Unfortunately, the patient did not survive due to cerebral embolism 7 days after the operation. It is crucial to prevent perioperative complications. The Author(s) 2018.
