Supravalvular aortic stenosis in adult with anomalies of aortic arch vessels and aortic regurgitation.

Valente AS, Alencar P, Santos AN, Lobo RA, Mesquita FA, Guimarães AG - Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc (2013 Oct-Dec)

Bottom Line: The supravalvular aortic stenosis is a rare congenital heart defect being very uncommon in adults.We present a case of supravalvular aortic stenosis in adult associated with anomalies of the aortic arch vessels and aortic regurgitation, which was submitted to aortic valve replacement and arterioplasty of the ascending aorta with a good postoperative course.

We present a case of supravalvular aortic stenosis in adult associated with anomalies of the aortic arch vessels and aortic regurgitation, which was submitted to aortic valve replacement and arterioplasty of the ascending aorta with a good postoperative course.

f02: Images from the surgery. Aortotomy in inverted “Y”, thickened aorta. Mechanicalaortic prosthesis positioned. Final external appearance, with a pericardialpatch extending to the right coronary and non-coronary sinus.

Mentions: After suturing, the final appearance is quite anatomical (Figure 2). Biological glue was used to enhance hemostasis. Afterrewarming, the patient was removed from CPB without difficulty and surgery was fullyperformed traditionally. The surgery was uneventful in 3 hours and 30 minutes, with80 minutes of CPB and 40 minutes of aortic clamping.
