Contained rupture following percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty: long-term outcome

Cathet Cardiovasc Diagn. 1993 Feb;28(2):152-4. doi: 10.1002/ccd.1810280212.

Abstract

Coronary artery aneurysm formation can occur as a complication of balloon angioplasty. We present a case of a contained rupture of the left circumflex artery following angioplasty which resulted in an unusual pseudoaneurysm on angiography at 3-year follow-up.
