PMID:  17588436     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two cases of mycotic aneurysms of the left anterior descending coronary artery in patients with fungal prosthetic valve endocarditis are reported. One was managed with exclusion and interposition graft, and the other was managed by aneurysm excision, wide debridement, and distal bypass. The current literature and management strategies are reviewed.
