Abstract

Coronary artery ectasia is an uncommon expression of coronary artery atherosclerosis and other diseases. It occurs in about 1.4 percent of the adult population. It is not distinguishable from obstructive coronary artery disease in severity of angina, clinical presentation, electrocardiograms, mortality, or outcome of coronary artery surgery. Although there is debate, treatment is indicated in the form of chronic warfarin anticoagulation to prevent coronary thrombus formation and its sequelae. Aspirin therapy may suffice in asymptomatic individuals.
