  • Figure 1. EKG of the patient at presentation demonstrates sinus tachycardia Right ventricular hypertrophy with repolarization abnormality
  • Figure 2. Transthoracic echocardiography, short parasternal view demonstrates moderate systolic flattening of the septum; the ventricle was moderately to markedly dilated with moderately to markedly reduced systolic function
  • Figure 3. Transthoracic echocardiography: Non-coronary aortic cusp noted to be ruptured or perforated into the right atrium just above tricuspid septal leaflet. There is blood entering the right atrium from the noncoronary sinus. The stars are indicating the area with defect
  • Figure 4 A,B: transesophageal echocardiography (A) with colored Doppler (B): The noncoronary cusp demonstrated a perforation/rupture extending to the right atrium with a large mass associated with the site of extension to the right atrium and significant left to right shunting noted
  • Figure 5. CT chest with IV contrast: a connection between aorta and right atrium
  • Figure 6. EKG of the patient after surgical intervention demonstrates third degree heart block
