The development and progressive enlargement over time of multiple saccular coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) after implantation of everolimus-eluting stent and bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have been reported. CAA was successfully excluded by two overlapped covered stents expanded inside a long metallic drug-eluting stent to avoid dislodgment at the overlap point. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was repeatedly performed to monitor CAA expansion and to guide treatment through precise measurement of aneurysm length and vessel size at the landing zone. At 10-month follow-up, coronary computed tomography angiography showed persistent CAA exclusion. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of this technique to exclude a long CCA segment.
