MANAGEMENT OF AORTIC ROOT ABSCESS DUE TO VALVE ENDOCARDITIS: AFORMIDABLE SURGICAL CHALLENGE

Abstract

Aortic root abscess results when uncontrolled infective endocarditis causes aneurysm of one of the sinuses of Valsalva that is in free communication with the aortic root above the valve cusps. The risk factors for aortic root abscess in endocarditis are bicuspid aortic valve, aortic valve regurgitation, degenerative aortic stenosis and patients with multi valvular disease. In general terms, prognosis is better if surgery is undertaken early, before cardiac tissue destruction and deterioration in the overall condition of the patient increase the hazards of intervention
