In the era of percutaneous coronary interventions, stent thrombosis is a rare, but potentially catastrophic complication with the majority of patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes or life-threatening arrhythmias. However, development of pseudoaneurysm following stent thrombosis is extremely rare. We report a case of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm following stent thrombosis that was successfully managed with coronary artery bypass grafting with resection of the pseudoaneurysm.
