Coronary aneurysm after bailout stent implantation: diagnosis of a false lumen with intravascular ultrasound.

Author information

Department of Medicine, Klinlkum Innenstadt, University of Munich, Germany.


This case report describes the intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) evaluation of a coronary artery aneurysm, developed in a stented segment within 6 mo after bailout stenting. Analysis of the IVUS images provides in vivo insights in the vessel-remodeling process after mechanical injury. The proximal entrance of the false lumen could be clearly visualized as well as the relationship between the stent struts, neolumen, and vessel wall. The discussion is focused on the options for management of such patients.
