Abstract

Coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) represent an uncommon disease with yet unclear standards of treatment. Clinical and anatomic characteristics determine choice of treatment. Stent-assisted coil embolization has been described as a valuable option for management of patients with wide-neck coronary aneurysms. Choice of appropriate stent sizing can be challenging particularly when there is a large difference between proximal and distal diameters. We report a case of stent-assisted coil embolization of a coronary aneurysm using a self-expandable stent. This type of stent can be helpful to treat CAA involving coronary sites where marked tapering of vessel diameter is often present.
