Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 63-year-old man underwent aortic valve replacement and an early reoperation for recurrent endocarditis. Sixteen months later he presented with persistent fever and a 64-slice computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a subannular left ventricular pseudoaneurysm. He underwent successful left ventricular outflow tract reconstruction and aortic valve prosthesis, partial root and ascending aorta replacement.
