Abstract

Mini-Abstract We present a case of a 25-year-old man with aortic regurgitation secondary to infective endocarditis. A preoperative transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated an abnormal aortic valve with possible vegetation or torn leaflet with severe aortic regurgitation, markedly dilated left coronary arteries, and a fistulous communication between the circumflex artery and the coronary sinus. The aortic valve was repaired and the coronary sinus arteriovenous fistula was ligated. At 1-year follow-up, there was no evidence of recurrent arteriovenous fistula or aortic regurgitation.
