Abstract

A ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (RSVA) is a rare cardiac anomaly. Traditionally, RSVAs were repaired surgically; however, percutaneous transcatheter closure is the current treatment of choice. We report two cases of RSVA which were closed using this approach. The first case was a 45-year-old female who presented to the Royal Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in 2014 with a RSVA in the right ventricle. The second case was a 39-year-old male who was admitted to the Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, in 2015 with a large multifenestrated RSVA extending into the right ventricle outflow tract. Each patient underwent transcutaneous cardiac catheterisation using three-dimensional echocardiography. Both interventions were technically successful; however, the second patient required a subsequent surgery due to the continuing presence of a significant shunt. Transcatheter closure of RSVAs is an effective alternative to surgical repair, although large multifenestrated RSVAs should be repaired surgically to ensure complete closure.
