STOLF, Noedir A. G. et al. False aneurysm of crimped bovine pericardial conduit after reconstruction of the ascending aorta: case report. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 1999, vol.14, n.4, pp.340-343. ISSN 1678-9741.

The authors describe the case of a patient who had an aneurysm of the ascending aorta repaired with biologic valved crimped bovine pericardial conduit. Nine years after the surgery he presented a false aneurysm of the ascending aorta, located posteriorly on the suture line of the pericardial tube. The patient was reoperated and the pericardial tube was replaced by a valved Dacron composite graft using the hemi- Cabrol technique for the reimplantation of the coronary ostia. At 12 months follow-up the patient remains free of symptoms.
