Abstract: Ruptured aneurysms of the sinus Valsalvae are relatively rare. Six patients have undergone operative treatment in our hospital in a 13-year period. Five of these, all men between the ages of 33 and 54 had a ruptured congenital aneurysm. Acquired aneurysms may occur and rupture at any age. One patient in our series had a mycotic aneurysm. Endocarditis was quite frequently encountered and seemed to play a role at the onset of rupture. Surgical technique consisted of direct closure in 4 patients and closure with … Show more

“…Aneurysms of the left sinus of Valsalva, which are the least common, are frequently acquired, especially if they rupture into the left heart[ 20, 26]. One explanation for extremely rare involvement of the left coronary sinus in congenital aneurysms is that the left coronary artery is supported by the sinus wall that runs intramurally just after its origin[ 30]. …”
