A 32-year-old woman presented to the emergency department after the sudden onset of palpitations, dyspnoea and left-sided tinnitus. Echocardiography revealed a ruptured aneurysm of the noncoronary sinus of Valsalva into the right atrium. Due to deterioration of right heart failure with rapidly progressive decline of systemic blood pressure, the patient underwent immediate surgery with a patch repair of the ruptured aneurysm. A few days later, the patient was discharged home in good condition.
