Abstract

1. 1. A case of ventricular septal defect with aortic insufficiency due to prolapse of the right aortic cusp is reported. 2. 2. Cardiac catheterization and x-ray studies failed to show evidence of a left-to-right shunt. 3. 3. Surgery directed at correction of the aortic insufficiency by plastic repair of the aortic valve serendipitously revealed a ventricular septal defect and permitted successful repair of both defects by the transaortic approach.
