Abstract

Sixteen-slice multidetector CT findings of a pulsatile pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa, in a woman following aortic valve replacement, are presented. Multidetector CT depicted the pseudoaneurysm and enabled dynamic evaluation of its lumen through the cardiac cycle, documenting expansion during systole and almost complete collapse during diastole. This case illustrates the capabilities of multidetector cardiac CT in the evaluation of aortic valve pathology.
