Abstract

Dissection of the interventricular septum due to an aneurysm of the left sinus of Valsalva is a very rare cardiac condition. We report a case in which we used a modified Bentall procedure for aortic root replacement in reoperating on a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm that had dissected into the interventricular septum.
