Abstract: A case report complicated by a perforation of the ascending aorta during percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty for acquired aortic stenosis in a bicuspid aortic valve is presented. The clinical and pathological findings are discussed. It is suggested that in patients with hard calcified valve cusps and calcifications of the aortic annulus balloon sizes exceeding the aortic diameter should be avoided.
