During the surgical procedure it was found a aneurysm of the sinotubular segment of the aorta
(Figure 4), a aneurysm of the non coronary sinus of Valsalva which ruptured into the right atrium, a bicuspid aortic valve with fenestrations in the non coronary cusp, a healed abscess in the right and non coronary cusp and subannular area anda 15 mm secundum atrial septal defect (Figure 5).
Turiaf, who went into surgery before dawn, was at risk of a potentially life-threatening rupture of the aorta
without the surgery.
pentobarbital) and killed by cutting their abdominal aorta
Intraoperative intravenous sonography along the length of the aorta
revealed the presence of a defect in the aortic wall just past the distal anastomosis.
The patient was referred to us from Thumbay Hospital after his CT scan revealed that he had large aneurysm above the aortic root below the ascending aorta
Mean aortic attenuation and noise were higher in high-pitch DS-CTA of thoracoabdominal aorta
, whereas SNR and CNR were similar in thoracic aorta
and significantly lower in high-pitch DS-CTA of abdominal aorta

The heart pumps blood from the left ventricle into the aorta
through the aortic valve.
His CT findings suggested grossly dilated aortic root and ascending aorta
, LV hypertrophy, severe postductal coarctation of aorta
, multiple mediastinal posterior chest wall, and paravertebral and intercostal collaterals on either side bypassing coarctation with collaterals channels [Figure 1A].

A comparison of less-invasive endovascular repair and open repair of these potentially deadly bulges in the aorta
wall, published in the July 23, 2015, New England Journal of Medicine, suggests that open surgical repair may be the better choice for a long-lasting fix.
