Concurrent submitral left ventricular aneurysm and an aneurysm of the sinus of valsalva: Report of a case.
Summary of "Concurrent submitral left ventricular aneurysm and an aneurysm of the sinus of valsalva: Report of a case."
We herein describe a rare case of a concurrent submitral left ventricular (LV) aneurysm and an aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva in a 65-year-old Japanese woman. The patient had a history of mitral valve replacement (MVR) for mitral regurgitation caused by a submitral LV aneurysm at the age of 58. At the time of the MVR, the orifice of the submitral LV aneurysm without thrombi was beneath the posterior leaflet, but surgical repair of the submitral LV aneurysm was not attempted. Although the patient was asymptomatic, when she underwent an echocardiogram at 65 years of age an aneurysm of the noncoronary sinus of Valsalva was detected. However, echocardiography performed before the initial operation had shown that the aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva was coexistent with the submitral LV aneurysm. Since the submitral LV aneurysm revealed no progressive enlargement during the 7 years, patch closure of the aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva alone was successfully performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.
Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.
A localized bulging or dilatation in the muscle wall of a heart (MYOCARDIUM), usually in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Blood-filled aneurysms are dangerous because they may burst. Fibrous aneurysms interfere with the heart function through the loss of contractility. True aneurysm is bound by the vessel wall or cardiac wall. False aneurysms are HEMATOMA caused by myocardial rupture.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
The tearing or bursting of the weakened wall of the aneurysmal sac, usually heralded by sudden worsening pain. The great danger of a ruptured aneurysm is the large amount of blood spilling into the surrounding tissues and cavities, causing HEMORRHAGIC SHOCK.
A sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is defined as a dilatation of the aortic sinuses, between the aortic valve annulus and the sinotubular junction. They are rare and most frequently involve the right corona...

The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the new endovascular repair technique of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an adequate substitute of the conventional AAA repair.
After endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, life-long follow-up is needed to monitor the effectiveness of exclusion of the aneurysm sac from blood flow. For this reason, aneurysm...
