Ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is an unusual cause for congestive heart failure, and anomalous coronary arteries have rarely been found in association. A 47-year-old man developed sudden onset heart failure due to a ruptured noncoronary sinus of Valsalva fistula to the right atrium. Coronary angiography revealed an anomalous left coronary artery arising from the right coronary sinus, limiting percutaneous options for repair. We review the incidence, complications, and management of sinus of Valsalva aneurysms and anomalous left coronary arteries.
