|Abstract||Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare anomaly with a higher incidence in Eastern than Western populations. Recent improvements in diagnostic techniques have resulted in more patients undergoing surgical repair. Uncorrected, the intracardiac shunts and frequently associated cardiac lesions cause a preventable deterioration in heart function. We retrospectively analyzed the data of 33 patients who underwent repair of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm from May 2000 to January 2010. The aneurysms originated from the right coronary sinus in 24 patients and from the noncoronary sinus in 9, and ruptured into the right ventricle in 21, right atrium in 10, and left ventricle in 2. Operative procedures included simple plication (1), patch repair (32), and aortic valve replacement (10). There were 3 early deaths. The 30 survivors were followed up for 5.4 2.6 years; all had an improvement in functional class, with superior results in those with no aortic regurgitation. Surgical treatment of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm has an acceptably low operative risk and good long-term symptom-freedom survival. An early aggressive approach is recommended to prevent worsening symptoms and more extensive disease.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
