Abstract

Bicuspid aortic valve is one of the most common congenital cardiac anomalies and it may be accompanied by other cardiovascular anomalies. Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare anomaly in adult population, but it coexists with bicuspid aortic valve quite often. This report describes a 57 years-old patient who had a bicuspid aortic valve accompanied by unruptured Valsalva sinus aneurysm with significant left anterior narrowing and who underwent successful surgery with ascending aorta and aortic valve replacement as well as coronary by-pass grafting.
