Coronary aneurysm may occur after implantation of a paclitaxel-eluting stent. However, early coronary aneurysms arevery rare. We report an early coronary aneurysm at one month in a middle-aged man who had anterior descendingartery infarct angioplasty done with two overlapped Taxus Liberte stents. Our finding was a fortuitous one. The casedescribed here illustrates the need for a higher index of suspicion for a coronary aneurysm when overlapping drug-eluting stents are used, especially in an infarct angioplasty.
