This report describes the course and operative findings in a 66-year-old man with a densely calcified false aneurysm of his ascending aorta 19 years after replacement of a severely stenosed bicuspid aortic valve with a McGovern-Chromie prosthesis. This report emphasizes the need to consider this possibility, even in patients with a very remote prior operation.
