A seventy-two year-old man, who complained of severe back pain, was referred to our hospital. Digital subtraction angiogram (DSA) delineated an extracardiac unruptured aneurysm of the right coronary sinus of Valsalva and acute type B aortic dissection. Patch plasty of the right coronary sinus with reimplantation of the right coronary artery using a Dacron graft was performed. Postoperative DSA confirmed successful reconstruction of the aortic root and the patent right coronary artery.
