Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm of the non-coronary sinus of Valsalva is an exceptionally rare but potentially fatal complication of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). Here, we report a case of a 53-year-old man with pseudoaneurysm of the non-coronary sinus of Valsalva following PCI who presented with recurrent chest pain and was treated successfully by closure of the orifice of the pseudoaneurysm and coronary artery bypass grafting.
