Abstract

The emergence of endovascular techniques has enabled minimally invasive options for repair and salvage of postoperative sequelae from complex aortic operations. There have been few reports of percutaneous transcatheter repair of aortic pseudoaneurysms after composite aortic root replacement with reports of only two patients with follow-up longer than two years. We report a case of a 35 year man who developed an aortic root pseudoaneurysm following a composite aortic root replacement and was successfully managed by transcatheter repair using an Amplatzer™ Septal Occluder without evidence of recurrence at two year follow-up.
