Abstract

Directional coronary atherectomy has recently become available to treat coronary stenosis by excision and removal of tissue. The optimal depth of resection by this method has not been determined and complications have occurred. This report describes the formation of a coronary aneurysm at an atherectomy site in an asymptomatic patient, a finding not reported previously.
