Abstract

Abstract Giant right coronary artery aneurysm is a rare coronary artery pathology. We describe a 45-year-old gentleman who presented with unstable angina of recent onset. Diagnostic work up including chest CT angiography and left heart catheterization demonstrated 3-vessel coronary artery disease with giant proximal right coronary artery aneurysm. In the view of the severity of the coronary artery disease and the risk of rupture associated with the giant right coronary artery aneurysm and the clinical presentation, patient was successfully treated by coronary artery bypass surgery. During this procedure, the right coronary artery aneurysm was ligated at both inflow and outflow. Patient recovered well and was discharged home.
