抜粋

A 78-year-old female was admitted to our hospital because of sudden onset of chest pain and general fatigue. A chest X-ray showed marked cardiomegaly and computed tomography (CT) revealed pericardial effusion with left pleural effusion. Upon admission to CCU, she suddenly lost consciousness and was intubated. Echocardiography confirmed increase in the amount of the pericardial effusion, which was drained at CCU. By an emergent operation, ruptured aneurysm of the noncoronary sinus of Valsalva to the pericardial space was confirmed upon opening the chest and patch plasty of the sinus of Valsalva was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful, and she was discharged on the 24th postoperative day. Extracardiac rupture of aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva is extremely rare, and the emergent operation is indispensable.
