Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm of the native sinus of Valsalva is exceedingly rare. We present a case of a 32-year-old male who was referred to the hospital after he had been symptomatic for 1.5 years. Transoesophageal echocardiography and computed tomography illustrated a pseudoaneurysm arising from the non-coronary sinus of Valsalva. A prompt operation was performed upon admission, and the patient recovered.
