PMID:  3484696     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This is the first report of fatal postoperative Aspergillus infection in an aortic pseudoaneurysm associated with a jet lesion produced by a deformed, but hemodynamically normal aortic valve. Widespread arterial embolization was the principal feature and resulted in death on the 12th hospital day due to massive thromboembolism to the brain three months after successful coronary bypass surgery. Possible sources of such infections and the potential effect of the jet lesion are discussed.
