|Title:||Severe Dilatation of Coronary Artery Ostium Complicating Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm: Differential Diagnosis and Review of the Literature||Authors:||Bamford, Paul ;Collins, N.||Affliation:||Central Coast Local Health District
|Issue Date:||Apr-2017||Source:||2017:8694652||Journal title:||Case Reports in Cardiology||Department:||Cardiology||Abstract:||Coronary artery dilatation may be due to various aetiologies including congenital anomalies, atherosclerotic coronary disease, and Kawasakis disease. We describe a case characterised by apparent severe dilatation of the right coronary artery ostium in an asymptomatic male. Subsequent imaging and surgical intervention documented the presence of a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm extending into the ostium of the right coronary artery. This represents an unusual manifestation of a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm. The underlying pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, role of surgical management, and outcomes are discussed.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/1543||DOI:||10.1155/2017/8694652||Pubmed:||https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28487777||ISSN:||2090-6404||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Cardiology
