We encountered a case of pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta, aortic stenosis and regurgitation, and infected popliteal aneurysm discovered 24 years after cardiac operation. A 34-year-old male who had undergone radical operation for subaortic stenosis at age 10 had infectious endocarditis. Pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta and aortic stenosis and regurgitation were noticed after diagnosis of a popliteal aneuyrsm, and operation was performed in two stages. Resection of the popliteal aneurysm, direct suturing of the entry as well as resection of the pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta, patch plasty of the defect and replacement of aortic valve were performed with satisfactory results.@
