Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 14-year-old boy presented with an unusual bulging chest noted to be increasing slowly over the last few years. He had no other complaints. Cardiac echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed aneurysmal dilation of the ascending aorta with moderate aortic valve insufficiency and moderate pericardial effusion. The boy underwent reconstruction of his ascending aorta in the form of a Bentall procedure using a 25-mm Carbomedic valve conduit.
