False aneurysm of the ascending aorta following cannulation.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  303857     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The development of a false aneurysm of the ascending aorta following arteriotomy and cannulation of the aorta performed during closure of a ventricular septal defect is described. The evidence suggest that the sutures of the arteriotomy led to rupture of the aortic wall and secondarily late formation of a false aneurysm.
