PMID:  12692030     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The recommended operative management of unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm consists of closure of the mouth of the aneurysm with or without aortic valve surgery. We report a case of unruptured aneurysm producing right ventricular outflow tract obstruction. Closure of the mouth of the aneurysm failed to relieve the obstruction, which was subsequently achieved by excising the aneurysmal wall overlying the outflow tract.
