Abstract

A coronary aneurysm (CA) can occur in sirolimus-eluting stent (SES)-implanted coronary lesions. Although several possible mechanisms have been suggested, the precise pathogenesis of a CA in SES-implanted lesions is still unknown. We report a patient with Churg-Strauss syndrome who underwent successful percutaneous coronary intervention with SES and then experienced a CA in an SES-implanted coronary lesion. We describe the CA characteristics through the use of coronary angiography, coronary 64-multidetector computed tomography, and intravascular ultrasound and discuss the etiological factors for the CA in this patient.
