Abstract

Coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) has been increasingly reported in recent years. The symptoms are related to myocardial ischemia, such as angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, sudden death and congestive heart failure. This report describes a case of a giant CAA with calcification and stenosis involving two coronary arteries, and the patient underwent a complete arterialized coronary artery bypass graft successfully. In this report, all cases related to CAA with calcification and stenosis are summarized. According to the data, the following conclusions can be drawn: CAA seem to be more common in men; Kawasaki disease is likely to be a causative factor in some patients with asymptomatic CAA involving calcification and stenosis; CABG is a feasible treatment option for CAA with calcification and stenosis.
