Over the years, the surgery of ventricular postinfarction aneurysm has evolved from linear resection to endoaneurysmorrhaphy using a patch. Technically, several aims that include the restoration of ventricular shape and function, exclusion of dead space, minimization of the risk of thrombus formation and restoration of valve function are pursued. Herein is reported the case of a 58-year-old male with a giant inferobasal aneurysm involving

 

the mitral valve apparatus who underwent successful endoaneurysmorrhaphy. Correct sizing of the patch proved to be the ‘road to success’ in this patient. The present case is the second reported instance of a giant ventricular aneurysm involving the mitral valve, with favorable outcome.
