Abstract

Spontaneous pseudoaneurysm of the aortic arch is an exceptionally rare and potentially life-threatening condition.Diagnosis of pseudoaneurysms of the aortic arch mainly depends on imaging examinations.Contrast-enhanced echocardiography, as a non-invasive, bed-side and radiation-free tool, plays an important role in the rapid diagnosis and postoperative follow-up of pseudoaneurysms of the aortic arch.
