Case 1 was a 20-year-old male who had been involved in a traffic accident and developed aortic regurgitation (AR) eight months later. He was admitted with dilatation of the left ventricle. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) showed severe AR with perforation of the right coronary cusp. Case 2 was a 50-year-old male who had fallen from a height four months previously, and was admitted with congestive heart failure due to severe AR. TEE showed severe AR due to rupture of the right coronary cusp. In the former patient, valve repair was performed with a patch of autologous pericardium. In the latter patient, cusp reconstruction was performed with autologous pericardium and the commissural plication technique, achieving successful aortic valve repair. Keywords: Trauma; Aortic valve regurgitation; Valve repair.
