An Unusual Case of Ascending Aorta Dissection 4 Years after Perceval Sutureless Bioprosthesis Implantation: Easier Access to Diagnosis through the Right Parasternal Longitudinal Echocardiographic Window.

Sutureless bioprostheses are more frequently used for the surgical treatment of elderly patients with high burden of comorbidity, who are candidates to aortic valve replacement (AVR). Among the sutureless bioprostheses, the Perceval valve has shown a good midterm durability, with very few reports of valve deterioration and low risk of complications. Herein, we present an unusual case of ascending aorta dissection which occurred 4 years after AVR with a Perceval sutureless pericardial bioprosthesis, likely related to the peculiar prosthetic design. A high right parasternal longitudinal view of the aorta in the right lateral decubitus allowed to suspect the acute aortic syndrome, thus accelerating the subsequent diagnostic and therapeutic iter.
