Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary aneurysms are rare occurrences but are known to be associated with complications. Controversies persist regarding the use of medical or surgical management, especially in the presence of obstructive coronary artery disease. This information is further lacking in cases of coronary aneurysm that appears to be working as collaterals/bypass blood across a suboccluded stenosis.
