Pseudoaneurysm of coronary artery following rupture of coronary artery during coronary angioplasty

Pseudoaneurysm of coronary artery following rupture of coronary artery during coronary angioplasty

Catheterization and Cardiovascular Diagnosis 26(4): 304-307

Rupture of the coronary artery is a rare complication of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). We describe a case of coronary artery rupture during PTCA resulting in the formation of a coronary artery pseudoaneurysm. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully treated by percutaneous spring-coil embolization of the coronary artery.
