Comments: The Discussion centralizes aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva (A-SOV) as a rare disease that require immediate diagnosis to prevent lethal complications. It provides relevant literature on the origin of A-SOV and the disease outcome. This further describes the treatment for ruptured A-SOV and suggests the surgical approaches followed by techniques to reconstruct non-coronary sinus (NCS). The Conclusion further highlights the importance of early detection to prevent the risk of developing A-SOV and the role of pericardial adherences to influence immediate survival.

Further comments on the paper

Comments: This report presents a 55-year-old patient with a history of aortic valve replacement with superior vena cava syndrome related to a contained ruptured aneurysm of the non-coronary sinus of Valsalva (A-NCSOV) followed by dyspnea. Overall, this illustrates the management and factors influencing immediate survival in the rupture of sinus of Valsalva aortic root dissection.
