BACKGROUND We reviewed our experience with congenital ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysms (RSVA) to determine patterns of early recurrence and the fate of the aortic valve (AV). METHODS Over a 28-year period, RSVA was identified in 34 patients, (mean age 31.6 years). Primary closure of the RSVA was performed in 10 patients, and a patch employed in 24. Aortic insufficiency was present in 24 patients. AV replacement (AVR) was performed in 5 patients; AV repair in 6. RESULTS Follow-up of 9.2… CONTINUE READING
