Özet

A 23-year-old man, operated on for pectus excavatum with a modified Ravitch procedure, was admitted to our emergency department suffering from severe dsypnea. Massive pericardial effusion, rupture of the sinus of Valsalva, and aortic-to-right ventricular fistula were present on echocardiography. Cardiac penetration of the metal bar was detected on chest CT scan. The defect at the right sinus of Valsalva was closed with a PTFE patch, and the right aortic and ventricular ruptures were repaired primarily.
