Direct closure of an asymptomatic right coronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 52-year-old man was referred for evaluation of palpitation. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed an extracardiac aneurysm of the right coronary sinus of Valsalva, and normal anatomy of the aortic valve with no regurgitation. Threedimensional computed tomography confirmed the aneurysm with a diameter of 21×13.7mm arising from the right coronary sinus of Valsalva under the right coronary artery. Surgical repair was performed without changing the normal anatomy of the aortic valve, preserving the right coronary ostium. Intraoperative and postoperative echocardiography showed complete closure of the aneurysm with normal functioning of the aortic valve.
