    Aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva are extremely rare. Ruptured aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva are frequently associated with other congenital defects, particularly with ventricular septal defect, aortic valve regurgitation, and bicuspid aortic valve. We describe the case of a 26-year-old...

    Aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva is a rare cardiac abnormality. Unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is usually asymptomatic, however, a ruptured aneurysm typically leads to an aortocardiac shunt and progressively worsening heart failure. We report a case of a 17-year-old male who suffered an...

    Aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva is an uncommon cardiac abnormality; however, the most common complication is rupture into the right heart chambers or rarely towards the left chambers. A ruptured aneurysm typically leads to an aortocardiac shunt and progressively worsening heart failure. We...

    Aneurysms of sinus of Valsalva are rare cardiac abnormalities. They are dilatations of the aortic sinuses and are classified as congenital or acquired. If located in the right coronary sinus they are usually ruptured into right heart chambers and frequently a ventricular septal defect coexists...
