Özet

Ascending aortic pseudoaneurysms are very rare entities generally occurring after heart surgery associated with cannulation for cardiopulmonary pump or aorta-coronary artery graft implantation. The pseudoaneurysm should be treated due to the potential risk of expanding, penetrating to adjacent tissues and rupturing. We present a case with a pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta associated with aorta-coronary artery saphenous graft, which is a rare but an important entity.
