Abstract


Coronary artery aneurysm is defined as the localized dilatation of a coronary artery segment more than 1.5 times the size of adjacent normal segments. The aneurysms of the coronary arteries are rare. Coronary aneurysms can be congenital or acquired. The majority are atherosclerotic in origin. The primary complication is myocardial ischemia or infarction, sudden cardiac death with rupture being rare. Some aneurysms are diagnosed incidentally in arteries other than the culprit artery. Treatment options include medical management with anticoagulation, percutaneous intervention with covered stents or surgery. We report a case of 67-year-old male who presented with acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiogram showed a moderate size aneurysm of the proximal left anterior descending artery. This aneurysm was successfully managed percutaneously with a covered stent.
