Abstract

Congenital aortico-left ventricular tunnel requires surgical repair during childhood. Long-term surveillance is essential in these patients given the risk for aortic aneurysm development in adulthood. We describe an aortic root replacement for an aortic aneurysm five decades following the closure of an aortic-left ventricular tunnel.
