Abstract

We report here on a case of a 34-year-old man with unruptured aneurysm of the left sinus of Valsalva, and he presented with acute coronary syndrome due to the putative dynamic compression of both the left main coronary artery and the left circumflex coronary artery. The cardiac multislice computed tomography scanning and coronary angiogram revealed the compression of the two coronary arteries by the aneurysm of the left sinus of Valsalva. Aneurysmectomy was performed for surgical repair. After the surgery, the patient stayed asymptomatic during the 6-months of follow-up.
