Abstract

Abstract A case of congenital aorto–right ventricular tunnel diagnosed preoperatively as ruptured sinus of Valsalva is presented. Careful search of the literature pertaining to this subject has revealed an extremely limited number of patients with the lesion, which differs from ruptured sinus of Valsalva by the presence of an intact aortic sinus and cusps displaying normal configuration. The entity has not yet been described in classic textbooks. Successful repair of this abnormal communication is possible with the help of extracorporeal circulation and anoxic arrest.
