Figure 2: Transesophageal echocardiography of the aortic root (short axis view) demonstrates the orifice of the left-side sinus of Vasalva aneurysm (SVA) during diastole and systole (upper-left and upper-right panels). Transthoracic echocardiography (parasternal long axis, diastole) shows the large SVA bulging into the left atrium, displacing the anterior mitral valve leaflet toward the apex of the ventricle (lower-left panel). A smaller secondary aneurysm bulges toward the left ventricular outflow tract. (*) Cine cardiovascular magnetic resonance (transverse slice, 8 mm slice thickness, 3 T) reveals the SVA, originating from the left coronary sinus, bulging into the left atrium. AoR = aortic root; LA = left atrium; LV = left ventricle; LCC = left coronary cusp; NCC = noncoronary cusp; RCC = right coronary cusp
