Özet

This case report describes a patient who developed an aneurysmatic dilation of a coronary artery 6 months after successful primary stent implantation. The dilation occurred within the stented segment of the artery. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the development of an aneurysm, in the absence of angiographically visible dissection or other possible causative factors. (C) 1997 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
