Coronary artery ectasia and systolic flow cessation in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: a case report.


Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is characterized by diffuse or localized inappropriate dilation of coronary arteries and is often associated with slow coronary blood flow. Although CAE has been described to coexist with several clinical entities there are only three reports of CAE in the presence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). We report a case of CAE and slow coronary flow with systolic flow cessation in a 61-year old male with coronary artery disease and HCM.
