Abstract

An aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva ruptures in about 35% of all cases and only leads to acute symptoms in 25% of all patients. This paper illustrates a case of a patient who was scheduled for an elective operation due to an aneurysm of the right coronary sinus of Valsalva, which ruptured and led to the necessity of an emergency surgery.
