Notes:

Aneurysms usually result from large areas of fibrotic myocardium scarred by ischemic infarction. A common area for aneurysm includes the antero-apical segments which create a distortion of the ventricular shape both in systole and diastole and prevent effective ventricular pumping since their wall motion is often paradoxic. Postero-basal aneurysms also occur and are well defined by the long axis view.
