Coronary Aneurysm With Stent Dislocation Leading to the Diagnosis of Marfan Syndrome
A 50-year-old male patient presented with unstable angina in our chest pain unit. He had a history of successful resuscitation after sudden cardiac arrest attributable to acute myocardial infarction 3 years ago. Coronary angiography at that time demonstrated acute proximal occlusion of the right coronary artery (Figure 1A) treated by balloon dilatation and implantation of 2 bare metal stents (Figure 1B). The second overlapping stent was necessary because of insufficient coverage of the diseased ostium after the first stent.
