Mehmet Kaya, Taner İyigün, Burak Ersoy, Mehmet Yeniterzi.

Ascending aortic partial graft interposition is a widely used surgical technique in ascending aorta surgery. Long term results of this operation is well if native aortic valve is in good condition. Patients who have bicuspid aortic valve undergoing ascending aortic partial graft interposition experience aortic valve stenosis or regurgitation in long term. Due to hemodynamical changes which leads to an increase in pressure in native aortic wall recurrent residual aortic aneurysms can be observed. Those patients require reoperation which leads to an extensive procedure such as Bentall procedure. In this report, we present a case who has developed aortic root aneurysm after having surgery for acute aortic dissection and aortic coarctation.

Key words: Aortic aneurysm, Aortic dissection, Bicuspid aortic valve, Computed tomography angiography, Aortic root
