GALLO, Melina M. et al. Post-traumatic false (pseudo) aneurysm of the left main coronary artery. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2011, vol.71, n.4, pp. 373-375. ISSN 0025-7680.

Coronary pseudo-aneurysm is an extremely rare entity. Its natural history is scarcely known and its treatment is controversial. We report a case of pseudo-aneurysm of the left main coronary artery associated with an antero-apical infarct of the left ventricle diagnosed five years after a cardiac arrest following a non-penetrating thoracic trauma. The patient was treated conservatively because percutaneous or surgical correction were not considered suitable for this lesion. A multidetector computed tomography coronary angiogram performed 10 years after the initial event showed no evidence of progression.

Palabras clave : Coronary artery disease; Trauma; Coronary false aneurysm.
