Surgical treatment of traumatic rupture of the bicuspid aortic valve; report of a case



Surgical treatment of traumatic rupture of the bicuspid aortic valve; report of a case



Kyobu Geka. Japanese Journal of Thoracic Surgery 55(7): 588-590



A 27-year-old man was injured during a motocross game. He was suffered from dyspnea, orthopnea, and hemoptysis. The to-and-fro murmur was noticed 3 days after the accident and then the patient was admitted to our hospital. Echocardiography revealed severe aortic regurgitation. Computerized tomography also showed severe pulmonary contusions. Seventeen days after the accident the aortic valve replacement was performed. The aortic valve was anterior-posterior type bicuspid valve (fusion of right coronary cusp and light coronary cusp) and the tear was detected in the anterior cusp. The postoperative course was uneventful. Rupture of the aortic valve due to a blunt chest trauma is rare and reported in 20 cases previously in Japan. This case is the second report of traumatic rupture of the bicuspid aortic valve.
