Aneurysms of the sinuses of Valsalva, when detected before rupture, are repaired electively. When they are small, they are most frequently repaired by direct closure; when they are large, they are repaired with a prosthetic patch. When they are associated with prolapse of the corresponding aortic cusp and aortic insufficiency, valve replacement is usually performed concomitantly. We present the case of a patient in whom both abnormalities were corrected by implantation of a Freestyle bioprosthesis, the wall of which completely excluded the aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva. The patient remains asymptomatic 18 months after surgery.
