Plaque rupture as a cause of apparent coronary aneurysm formation following directional coronary atherectomy


Late coronary aneurysm formation was observed following treatment by directional coronary atherectomy. Intravascular ultrasound disclosed that the mechanism involved was plaque rupture. The cause of coronary aneurysm may be multifactorial after coronary interventions. Intravascular ultrasound imaging is useful for understanding the pathologic mechanism of coronary aneurysm production.
