Abstract

A case of aneurysm of the main stem of the left coronary artery associated with aortic insufficiency and an aneurysm of the ascending aorta is reported. The importance of coronary angiography in diagnosing this condition is illustrated. Surgical repair included isolation of the coronary aneurysm and replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic valve, combined with triple aortocoronary saphenous vein bypass grafts. A review of the aetiology, clinical features, and surgical management of coronary artery aneurysms is presented. Images
