The clinical significance of coronary artery aneurysms is briefly discussed. Until recently, surgical excision was the only treatment available. Single-case reports have documented aneurysm exclusion with vein-covered stents using 10 or 11 F. guiding catheters. This paper reports four patients with coronary artery aneurysms which were successfully excluded with the use of a novel pericardium-covered stent which is less invasive and shortens procedure time compared with the use of an autologous vein-grated stent and can be deployed using 8 F. or 9 F. guiding catheters. Short-term (five- to eight-month) clinical follow-up has been event-free in all patients, and in three patients six-month follow-up angiography has shown insignificant luminal loss.
