Abstract

The implantation of sutureless bioprosthesis is currently not recommended in patients affected by bicuspid aortic valve because lacking data and follow up. We report the first case of a patient affected by bicuspid aortic valve stenosis and aneurysm of non coronary sinus of Valsalva that underwent a successful substitution of aneurysmatic sinus and minimal invasive sutureless implantation.
