RENDON, Jairo A  and  DUARTE, Néstor R. Broken sinus of Valsalva aneurysm: Report of a case evaluated with real time tridimensional echocardiography. Rev. Colom. Cardiol. [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.3, pp.154-157. ISSN 0120-5633.

Aneurysms of sinus of Valsalva is an uncommon condition. We report the case of a 25-year-old female patient with a history of infective endocarditis of the tricuspid valve, who presented progressive dyspnea and holosystolic murmur. Non-coronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm with rupture into the right atrium was documented, diagnosed by transesophageal 3D echocardiography and confirmed at surgery.

Keywords : sinus of Valsalva; broken aneurysm; transesophageal echocardiography; endocarditis; tridimensional.
