Pseudoaneurysms of the ascending aorta are a rare but potentially fatal complication of cardiac surgical procedures. There are few reports of pseudoaneurysm formation after cardiac transplantation, and previously reported cases involve mycotic aneurysmal tissue. This case report describes a 53-year-old man in whom a noninfectious aneurysm of the ascending aorta developed after cardiac transplantation.
