Abstract

Rupture of an aortic aneurysm into the pulmonary artery is a rare and often a fatal event. This complication results in the development of an acute left to right shunt, volume overload, and rapid right heart deterioration. We describe a case of thoracic aortic aneurysm in whom the diagnosis of a communication with the pulmonary artery was made on the basis of transthoracic echocardiography.
