Treatment of lesions associated with coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) remains a challenge. This is especially true in patients presenting with multiple CAA. We, therefore, describe a case of a 48-year-old male with severe multivessel disease related to CAA who was treated using drug-eluting stents to address the stenoses located at the CAA edges. The value of intravascular ultrasound to guide and optimize the results of this complex intervention is emphasized.
