Özet

We report a case of aorta-right ventricular fistula associated with aortic and mitral valve replacements. We considered it as a paravalvular leakage. Aorta-right ventricular fistula is a very rare variant of paravalvular leakage. We discuss the aetiology, diagnosis, and preventive and therapeutic options in the modern era.
