Abstract

Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare entity and can be congenital or acquired. The disease can progress silently until the aneurysm ruptures, finally causing symptoms. Once ruptured, if such an aneurysm is not treated timely, the patient will progress to left heart failure. We discuss a 61-year-old male who presented with increasing dyspnea over 2 months. He underwent uncommon, less invasive interventional treatment and made a full recovery in a brief period. His condition of combined rupture of the sinus of Valsalva and bicuspid aortic valve was very rare.
