Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ruptured congenital aneurysms of the noncoronary aortic sinus shunting into both the right atrium and right ventricle are extremely rare. We present here such an anomaly in a 40-year-old man, focusing on the diagnostic reliability of echocardiography and the unusual angiographic features of the aortic sinus aneurysm in this patient.
