Infective Endocarditis-Related Pseudoaneurysms After Bentall Surgery: The Role of 3D Printing in Pre-Surgical Planning and Management: Case Report.

We present a case report of a male patient who underwent modified Bentall surgery with a mechanical valved conduit due to severe aortic regurgitation and ascending aortic aneurysm. Four years later, the patient developed a cascade of events as acute stoke, infective endocarditis due to Brucella abortus complicated by pseudoaneurysms of aortic graft with left ventricular outflow tract communication. A multi-modality approach, included a three-dimensional printing, facilitated the diagnosis and surgical planning. During surgery, the team opted for a salvage approach, and the patient showed continued improvement during follow-up. This case highlights the importance of careful monitoring and detection of potential complications after Bentall surgery, as well as the value of 3D printing in pre-operative planning.
