    Abstract

    Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare congenital defect and the diagnosisis usually made after it ruptures. Very few cases of non-complicated sinus of Valsalvaaneurysm have been published. The anomaly most often involves the right coronarysinus and less frequently the non-coronary sinus. A case with left sinus of Valsalvahas not been reported. Since the aortic valve occupies a central position in the baseof the heart, rupture of a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm can occur in any of the fourheart chambers. Rupture into the pulmonary artery is very rare and is mostly associatedwith other congenital cardiopathies.ª 2005 The European Society of Cardiology. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rightsreserved.
