Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this report we describe a case of a right coronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm dissecting into the interventricular septum with spontaneous rupture into the left ventricle. Sufficient information was provided by echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and aortography to confirm the diagnosis. Surgical findings were in complete accordance with cross-sectional and color flow Doppler imaging by transthoracic and transesophageal approaches.
