Coronary artery aneurysmal dilation is a rare finding with poorly understood mechanism of action that is found in small population of patients undergoing coronary angiography. Mycotic coronary aneurysm is an even rarer cause of coronary aneurysmal dilatation that develops as a potentially fatal complication of bacteremia. We present a case of mycotic right coronary artery aneurysm in a nonsurgical candidate with complex medical comorbidities treated with percutaneous coronary intervention via covered stents.
Keywords: coronary aneurysm; covered stenting; mycotic aneurysm; percutaneous coronary intervention; ventricular tachycardia.
