Percutaneous occlusion of ruptured Valsalva sinus aneurysms into the right ventricle
The authors report on two patients whose congenital sinus of Valsalva aneurysms had ruptured into the right ventricle and were successfully occluded percutaneously. Three different devices were implanted using two different approaches. Percutaneous closure warranted that one patent ductus arteriosus occluder through a transvenous antegrade approach and that one coil plus one ventricular septal defect occluder were implanted through an arterial retrograde approach. The procedures were accomplished without complications, the devices were well positioned at angiography and echocardiography views at the end of the interventions. At 6-month follow-up patients were asymptomatic, with devices in stable position without residual shunt.
