    Joan, not sure what you mean by ibfx but I survived a dissected aneurysm in 2018, had a graph repair and mechanical valve. I found out last month that I now have a ventricular pseudoaneurysm that developed in a weakened area where I apparently had some muscle damage. I am waiting for a date for surgery to repair this. I had not heard of this before. Anyone else have this issue?
