Giant right coronary artery
aneurysm presenting with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and severe
mitral regurgitation: a case report
Coronary artery aneurysms are seen
in 1.5-5% of patients presenting for coronary angiography, but giant aneurysms,
defined as being greater than 2 cm in diameter, are rare. Given the paucity of
cases and limited experience in diagnosis and management of the disease, each
case is a learning tool in itself.
We report the rare case of a
78-year-old Caucasian man who presented to a peripheral emergency department
with chest pain and was subsequently found to have a giant right coronary
artery aneurysm. Following initial investigation and treatment he was referred
to our hospital for definitive management.
The case described illustrates one
of the varied presentations and subsequent management of an ill-defined and
heterogeneous disease process. Given the limited experience with giant
aneurysms in the coronary circulation, this case provides valuable insight into
the clinical presentation of the disease and gives an example of the management
of the most recent such case at our hospital.
