Abstract

This case-report describes a large pseudoaneurysm of the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery, fissured in the pericardium, developed 4 days after rotational and directional atherectomy followed by stent implantation. A successful percutaneous repair was obtained with 2 vein- covered stents implanted and expanded under ultrasound guidance.
