Abstract

Background and aim of the study: Today, infective endocarditis (IE) remains a severe illness, with high mortality and morbidity. Mycotic aneurysms (MAs) are rare complications of IE. For most patients, surgical intervention represents the only hope for radical cure of extracranial MAs, and survival.
