ROTTA, Aida; DUENAS, Roy; RODRIGUEZ, Renzo  and  MARTORELL, Carlos. Pseudo-aneurism of the mitral aortic intervalvular fibrosa in a patient with bicuspid aortic valve endocarditis: A case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.168-172. ISSN 1018-130X.

Pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa is an infrequent but potentially fatal complication of aortic valve endocarditis. Diagnostic is done by an imaging technique, especially transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, consisting of a pulsatile cavity with systolic expansion and diastolic collapse located in the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa. Due to the risk of complications, aortic valve replacement and closure of the pseudoaneurysm is recommended. We present a case of pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa in a patient presenting with bicuspid aortic valve endocarditis

Keywords : Pseudoaneurysm; endocarditis; bicuspid aortic valve.
