    Ascending aortic pseudoaneurysms are a rare complication following cardiac surgery. Their traditional surgical management carries high morbidity and mortality, especially in patients with multiple comorbidities. Transcatheter closure of these pseudoaneurysms using a septal occluder device has...

    Pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa is a rare but serious sequela of endocarditis or valve replacement surgery. Because open-heart surgery is a high-risk treatment option, alternative methods are sought. We present the case of a 77-year-old man with a noninfected mechanical...
