Abstract

BRITO, João de Deus e et al. Left sinus Valsalva aneurysm into anterior wall of right ventricle. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2006, vol.21, n.3, pp. 348-351. ISSN 0102-7638.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-76382006000300016.

The case of a 36-year-old male suffering from left sinus Valsalva aneurysm into anterior right ventricle and severe aortic valve regurgitation is presented. Diagnosis of this association was achieved before surgery by cardiac catheterization and Echocardiography. The patient was submitted to surgical repair by closing the orifice of the aneurysm using a bovine pericardium patch. The aortic valve regurgitation was repaired using Trusler's procedure.

Keywords : Aneurysm; Sinus of Valsalva; Aortic valve insufficiency [surgery].
