Abstract

Coronary artery aneurysm is a rare but recognized complication following percutaneous intervention. We report the formation of such an aneurysm after recanalization with Excimer laser wire of a chronic totally occluded left anterior descending coronary artery and stent implantation and its subsequent treatment using an autologous vein graft-coated stent.
