Abstract

Aneurysmal dilation of coronary arteries is observed in up to 5% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. Due to their poorly elucidated underlying mechanisms, their variable presentations, and the lack of largescale outcome data on their various treatment modalities, coronary artery aneurysms and coronary ectasia pose a challenge to the managing clinician. This paper aims to provide a succinct review of aneurysmal coronary disease, with a special emphasis on the challenges associated with its interventional treatment.
