Abstract

Coronary insufficiency caused by unruptured left sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) is exceedingly rare in the literature. Herein, we present a successful surgically treated case of giant left SVA with severe aortic regurgitation and coronary insufficiency, thus introducing a tailored valve-sparing aortic root repair technique.
