Abstract

Coronary artery aneurysms larger than 5 cm are exceedingly rare, and a standard treatment for them is lacking. We report two cases of giant right coronary artery aneurysms successfully treated by off-pump resection of the aneurysm and bypass grafting. The controversy surrounding the proper management of such cases is discussed. (J Card Surg 2011;26:596-599)
