Dehiscence of coronary artery graft presenting as a right breast mass

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Coronary artery anastomotic dehiscence is a rare complication following aortic root repair in Marfan's disease. In this patient who presented several years after surgery with mediastinal and chest wall hematoma, gated IV contrast enhanced cardiac CT was able to noninvasively localize left main coronary artery anastomotic dehiscence as the source of bleeding.
