Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congestive heart failure developed in a 53-year-old man with a history of bicuspid aortic valve, angina, and pericarditis. Two-dimensional echocardiography showed a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm related to the anterior coronary sinus and color flow mapping identified a perforation of the anterior aortic cusp. These findings were confirmed during surgery.
