Abstract

Infection in the vascular tree has been proved to be one of the greatest challenges for cardiovascular surgeons. Of these, mycotic aneurysms of the ascending aorta were considered to be almost always lethal until recently. A thorough survey of the literature indicates that only 42 cases of mycotic aneurysm of the ascending aorta have been reported. All the reported cases of mycotic aneurysm of the ascending aorta were a single lesion in the ascending aorta except a case reported in 1993. This report describes an additional case of double mycotic aneurysms of the ascending aorta caused by Pseudomonas infection.
