Case Report

Abstract

We present the first case report of left ventricle muscular diverticulum which stands in front of the right ventricle in an asymptomatic 20-year-old male. The diverticulum has a connection with the left ventricular outflow truct, and contracts simultaneously with the left ventricle. The patient has been included in our congenital anomaly follow-up program.
