In this article, we describe a patient with recurring episodes of unstable angina and evidence of an ectatic proximal left anterior descending artery at coronary angiography. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) analysis showed multiple microaneurysms within an ulcerated plaque. Percutaneous treatment with a large-diameter bare-metal stent was undertaken; a resolution of symptoms, and angiographic and IVUS images of immediate results and at 12-month follow-up are reported.
