Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm formation is a dangerous, but uncommon, complication after the Ross procedure. We describe a patient in whom two pseudoaneurysms formed at the proximal suture line of the pulmonary autograft. These were successfully treated percutaneously, one by placement of an Amplatzer Septal Occluder (AGA Medical, Golden Valley, MN), and the other with coil embolization.
