What is Aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva?

  • Aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva: A rare form of aortic aneurysm that occurs in the sinus of Valsalva. An aneurysm is a thinning and bulging of a blood vessel wall. The condition is generally asymptomatic unless it burst and causes life-threatening complications including heart failure. An unruptured aneurysm may affect the blood flow (causing palpitations and syncope) as the bulge pushes against surrounding structures.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva as a "rare disease".
