Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This paper presents a rare cause of angina pectoris in a 43-year-old woman. Her evaluation revealed a compressed and proximally occluded right coronary artery by a giant, unruptured, right sinus of Valsalva aneurysm. The aneurysm was surgically resected and the sinus was successfully reconstructed. On follow-up the patient is asymptomatic.
