Abstract

Traumatic injury is the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in children more than 1 year old, and motor vehicle accidents cause most such injury. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy who, as a result of blunt trauma from an automobile accident, had 2 left ventricular aneurysms in a coup-contrecoup distribution. The aneurysms were repaired from within the left ventricle through a left atrial incision.
