Aorto-to-Right Atrial fistula (ARAF) is a frequent complication of ruptured Aortic Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm, tradi- tionally requiring surgical treatment. Endovascular closure is a management option nowadays available with good clinical outcomes. In this report, we present the singular case of a recurrent ARAF, sixteen years after transcatheter closure. At the admission at our department, the Patient presented with symptoms and signs of acute heart failure. Elective surgical repair was the treatment of choice.
