Abstract

Patch closure of the orifice of an aneurysm is a common operation for sinus of Valsalva aneurysms. Recently, there have been reports of aortic valve–sparing operations for multisinus of Valsalva aneurysms. However, repair would be difficult if only one sinus of Valsalva was dilated. We report a patient with a single unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm successfully treated using the patch repair technique.
