Abstract

With the advent of the composite graft for combined aortic valve and ascending aortic root operations, postoperative bleeding complications have been reduced. Hemorrhage along the suture sites may occur as a late complication and rarely may originate from the coronary-aortic graft junction. We report a case of a massive pseudoaneurysm, seen as "superior vena caval syndrome," 7 years after operation.
