Reviews Coronary Artery Aneurysms


This brief review deals with the various aspects of coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) which are defined as a localized or diffuse abnormal dilatation along the coronary arteries. The incidence at the Gülhane Military Academy was noted as 1.6 % in 5940 patients subjected to coronary arteriography which was in agreement with many other reports. Accelerated atherosclerosis often underlies CAA in which thrombosis, distal arterial embolism and rupture are complications most commonly observed. The annual attrition rate in medically managed patients with CAA has varied around 3 %, a rate which seemed not improved by surgical approach.
