Abstract

The case was a 54-year-old man after orthotopic heart transplantation with infected pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta. The operation was performed with hypothermic circulatory arrest. Pseudoaneurysm was excised and aortoplasty was performed with a bovine venous xenograft patch. Six months after the operation, and 2 years after transplantation, the patient is doing well.
