    Blunt ascending aortic injuries are rare in clinical practice. Aortic valve regurgitation is an uncommon consequence of closed chest injury. It is caused by either ruptured valve cusp or when subadventitial rupture of the ascending aorta causes prolapse of subjacent valve cusp. Most of the blunt...

    A pentacuspid pulmonary valve is a rare congenital anomaly. The present report describes a case of pentacuspid pulmonary valve encountered during the autopsy of a 50-year-old man with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. The pentacuspid pulmonary valve had three relatively equal cusps and two...

    Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms appear to be rare. They occur most frequently in the right sinus of Valsalva (52%) and the noncoronary sinus (33%). More of these aneurysms origi- nate from the right coronary cusp than from the noncoronary cusp. Surgical intervention is usually recommended when...

    We describe a case of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (RSVA) with moderate aortic regurgitation (AR), which developed on the second day after admission. The AR was caused by a hemodynamic effect solely, in which the shunt blood flow through ruptured site pulled the right aortic cusp away...

    Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) is defined as a weakness in the aortic valve wall, immediately above the attachments of each of the aortic cusps. This weakness can rupture and create an aortocardiac fistula. There are many congenital heart defects associated with chromosome 22q11 deletion,...

    Abstract?? Blunt ascending aortic injuries are rare in clinical practice. We have encountered two types of injuries to the ascending aorta with multidetector computed tomography: (1) a tear of the wall of the aortic root with a contained rupture and associated hemopericardium and (2) a tear at...

    OBJECTIVES We aimed at evaluating the results of aortic valve-sparing root replacement (AVSRR) in children with aortic root aneurysm (ARA) due to genetic disorders in terms of mortality, reoperation and recurrent aortic valve regurgitation (AVR). METHODS Thirteen patients (mean age 9.7 ± 6.5...
