Aortic dehiscence is an uncommon but serious complication of aortic valve surgery. The most common presentation is that of congestive heart failure and or cardiogenic shock. A number of other local complications can ensue due to involvement of the fibrous skeleton of the heart. We present a case where the dehiscence of the aortic valve resulted in elevated pulmonary arterial pressures and right sided heart failure due to the involvement of the right ventricular outflow tract. We review the literature focusing on the causes, summarize the diagnostic findings and the local complications that can result from aortic dehiscence. This complication of aortic valve dehiscence has not been reported so far.
