A 59-year-old female presented with a huge aortic preudoaneurysm (maximum diameter of 9 cm) 12 years following a modified Bentall procedure with a 23mm mechanical conduit (Figures 1,2). At reoperation the pseudoaneurysm was found to be due to complete dehiscence of both coronary ostial anastomoses, compressing the right cardiac sections.

Abstract

A 59-year-old female presented with a huge aortic preudoaneurysm (maximum diameter of 9 cm) 12 years following a modified Bentall procedure with a 23mm mechanical conduit (Figures 1,2). At reoperation the pseudoaneurysm was found to be due to complete dehiscence of both coronary ostial anastomoses, compressing the right cardiac sections.
