Question:

Which of the following aortic sinus aneurysms are rarest?
1. Right sinus.
2. Left sinus.
3. Non coronary sinus.
4. None of the above.
5. All of the above.





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Which of the following aortic sinus aneurysms are rarest?" is:

2. Left sinus.



Explanation
a) [Usually 65-85% of sinus of Valsalva aneurysms originates from the right sinus]

b) [< 5% from left sinus]

c) [10-30% from non coronary sinus].

d) [ Among three sinuses aneurysms arising from left sinus is rarest]

e) [Among three sinuses right sinus is common site and left the rarest sinus].

Abstract
Sinus of valsalva aneurysm is a rare condition arising from any of the three aortic sinuses. Among them, an aneurysm arising from the left coronary sinus is the rarest. Most of these cases were earlier diagnosed using echocardiography and conventional angiography. But with the availability of advanced imaging modalities like 64 slice cardiac CT and MR modalities, this condition can be accurately assessed noninvasively. We report a case of ruptured aneurysm originating from the left coronary sinus with a long windsock type of fistulous track between the aneurysm and right atrium evaluated by 64 slice cardiac CT imaging. This was later confirmed perioperatively.
