Abstract

The occurrence of acute aortic rupture after aortic valve replacement is unusual; but catastrophic. We report a case of a 71-year-old gentleman with a bicuspid aortic valve who developed acute aortic rupture after an elective bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement surgery in which successful repair was carried out with the preservation of the prosthetic valve.
