Abstract

Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm, usually a congenital anomaly, almost always ruptures into the right side of the heart causing a left-to-right shunt with profound hemodynamic consequences. With the availability of devices and hardware, transcatheter closure is gradually replacing surgical one. Till now, most of closures have been performed by Amplatzer duct occluder. To the best of our knowledge, the present case is first to be reported with this rare defect undergoing successful transcatheter closure of largest ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm arising from right coronary sinus by using 20/18 mm Cocoon Duct Occluder (Vascular Innovations, Nonthaburi, Thailand).
