A case of a huge aortic pseudo-aneurysm following aortic bio prosthetic endocarditis: key role of 3D echocardiography.
Anno:
2024
Complications of infective endocarditis (IE) are associated with increased mortality and morbidity and therefore guidelines recommend early surgery [. Although two-dimensional echocardiography (2D) is the first line investigation, three-dimensional (3D) imaging provides incremental diagnostic information by allowing visualisation of structures in multiple planes. We present a cases which demonstrate…
