Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case demonstrating compression of the right ventricular outflow tract by an unruptured coronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm in which repair resulted in symptomatic improvement is presented. The pathology report revealed that the patient's younger brother had died from a ruptured aneurysm of the coronary sinus of Valsalva. The present report is the first to describe a familial unruptured coronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm raising questions regarding the screening of relatives of patients with sinus of Valsalva aneurysms of unknown etiology.
