Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are rare congenital or acquired defects that frequently are manifested by rupture into adjacent cardiac structures. Most aneurysms involve a portion of the sinus, and can be surgically treated with primary or patch closure of the defect. We present a case report of a giant aneurysm that involved the entire noncoronary sinus of Valsalva, and describe a previously unreported technique with 10-year follow-up using a partial aortic allograft to reconstruct the abnormal aortic sinus, preserving the native valve leaflets and normal sinus geometry and averting use of prosthetic materials.
