ABSTRACT
Any major cardiac mass, by virtue of their anatomic location, is capable of producing a myriad of cardiac, embolic and systemic symptoms, sometimes with fatal consequences. We report a case of 37 year old patient with anterior wall MI with EF of 40%, and a large linear mass attached to apex in the left ventricular cavity. Coronary artery bypass grafting with left ventricular mass excision was done.
