Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 70-year-old male underwent a transthoracic echocardiography as a screening test for hypertension and an unruptured aneurysm was detected in the right sinus of Valsalva. The right sinus of Valsalva aneurysm obstructed the right ventricle outflow tract but he did not have any symptoms. The sinus of Valsalva aneurysm was treated successfully by a patch closure with a bovine pericardial patch.
