Abstract
The surgical approach to the repair of a ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm can depend on the cardiac chamber into which rupture occurs. This report details the color flow Doppler images in two patients who developed a right sinus of Valsalva aneurysm to right atrial fistula owing to bacterial endocarditis. In both cases, the color flow Doppler image was superior to contrast aortography in identifying the chamber into which rupture had occurred. The early experience with real-time two-dimensional Doppler flow imaging suggests that this noninvasive technique is valuable in the management of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysms.
