Pseudoaneurysms of the ascending aorta are rare, disastrous complications of surgical manipulation of the aorta and its surroundings. They frequently require emergency surgical intervention due to a high risk of sudden rupture and hemorrhage. We herein present the case of a pseudoaneurysm (130 mm in diameter) of the ascending aorta with a compressive effect on the left atrium and right coronary artery ostium at the site of a tube graft implanted 13 years previously via the Bental procedure in a 34 year-old man. The susceptibility of these pseudoaneurysms to silently increase in size through the years leads to a delayed diagnosis, with an increased risk of rupture and mortality, necessitating long-term follow-ups with a view to detecting it in the initial stages, when it is easier to perform surgical or endovascular interventions with a lower risk of mortality.
