Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm is rare in children. The gold standard for treatment has been surgical repair. Here, we describe a boy in whom an atypical left ventricular pseudoaneurysm was treated through staged transcatheter procedures. In addition, we highlight the importance of the preprocedure cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in providing invaluable information that allowed detailed planning of a management strategy for this unusual pseudoaneurysm.
