The risk of rupture of a left ventricular (LV) pseudoaneurysm ranges from 30% to 45% in the first year. Open surgical repair carries high mortality related to anatomic complexity and patient comorbidities. Percutaneous closure may offer a viable alternative to surgical intervention in this cohort. Herein, we describe 3 unique cases of transcatheter LV pseudoaneurysm closure.
