Cardiac arrest during anesthesia induction in a patient with LV pseudoaneurysm

Free wall rupture of the Left Ventricle (LV) is a rare life-threatening complication of acute myocardial infarction. Very rarely such a rupture may be contained by the adhering pericardium thus creating a pseudoaneurysm. This condition warrants for emergency surgery. Hemodynamic management is very important in such patients during induction of anesthesia. We report a case of 58 years old male patient who collapsed during induction of anesthesia in the operation theatre.
