Abstract

A coronary artery aneurysm was first reported by Bougon in 1812, and was able to be diagnosed during life with advance of selective coronary arteriography. We have recently seen a 62-year-old woman who had intermittent anterior chest pain and dyspnea on exertion(NYHA functional class II) and diagnosed a coronary artery aneurysm by coronary arteriography. A saccular formed coronary artery aneurysm was located at left main coronary artery at the juction of the bifurcation of LAD and left circumflex artery and it's was 2cmx2cm and it's thickness of wall was 0.5cm. After the patency and consistency of coronary arteries were confirmed,resection of aneurysm with aneurysmorrhaphy was performed.
