Several reports described the repair of sinus of Valsalva aneurysms (SVAs); however, there is still debate regarding the optimal method of operation. We investigated the determinants of the development of significant aortic regurgitation (AR) and long-term survival after surgical repair.

Surgical intervention is the main treatment for a ruptured congenital sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA). However, reports on the surgical experience are scarce. We retrospectively analysed the cases of...
Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm (SVA) is an aortic root anomaly, consisting of a lack of continuity between the aortic media and the aortic annulus, caused by a structural deficiency of muscular and elast...
Sinus of Valsalva (SOV) aneurysms are rare and data on operative management are limited. They can cause right ventricular outflow tract or pulmonary artery compression, and rupture may be fatal. In th...
An alternative peratrial device closure technique for ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm into right atrium under exclusive transesophageal echocardiographic guidance is presented. The ruptured site w...
Left sinus of Valsalva aneurysm(SVAn)is a very rare clinical entity. We present a 68-year-old female with left SVAn, 5 cm in diameter, compressing the left main coronary artery and causing antero-sept...
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.
This is a prospective, non-randomized, single center, data collection study of patients treated with open surgical repair (OR) for complex aortic aneurysms (CAAs).
Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) aims to reduce the risk of aneurysm (AAA) rupture by reducing the blood pressure transmitted to the wall of the aneurysm. Aneurysms tha...
The First In Human (FIH) study is a long-term, single center, non-randomized study established by Lombard Medical, Inc. to collect "on-label" data in the clinical setting on patients under...
The purpose of this study is to compare the cost effectiveness, quality of life and outcomes of the endovascular stent graft repair with the open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneury...
The dilatation of the aortic wall behind each of the cusps of the aortic valve.
A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.
Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
