Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aorto-right ventricular fistulas are defects of the aortic wall in the area above the right coronary cusp, where it separates aorta and right ventricular outflowtract. Often, these injuries are due to trauma or infective endocarditis. We report an occasional finding of such a fistula, without these causes. There were no other abnormalities on the aortic valve, root or the ascending aorta.
