The common risk factors for developing LV aneurysm include ST elevation MI, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), advanced age, and hypertension.

Risk Factors

The most potent risk factor for the development of the LV aneurysm is ST elevation MI. Other risk factors include:[1][2][3][4]
