The Coincidence of 3 Different Rare Coronary Artery Anomalies in an Adult Patient With Untreated Kawasaki Disease

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

The coincidence of 3 different rare coronary artery anomalies is extremely rare, and has not been reported so far.

We report multiple imaging findings of a giant coronary artery aneurysm, which has a fistulous connection to the right ventricle associated with anomalous origin of the anterior descending coronary artery from the right coronary artery in a 67-year-old woman who suffered with a 20-year history of progressively chest distress on exertion and a history of untreated Kawasaki disease in her childhood.

The patient received surgical treatment. The aneurysm was resected and openings at both ends being oversewn. And the fistula was also closed directly. She recovered and discharged uneventfully.

The coincidence of 3 different rare coronary artery anomalies in adult patient with untreated Kawasaki disease is a rare and complicated condition, in which surgical treatment is recommended.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 5: Preoperative 3-dimensional heart reconstruction of MSCT images. The coronary artery aneurysm disappeared. MSCT = multi-slice computed tomography.

Mentions: At operation, a small hole measuring only 0.3 cm width was detected in the aneurysm whose diameter was about 3.0 × 3.5 cm, through which the aneurysm drained to the RV. Under cardiopulmonary bypass via median sternotomy, both the proximal and distal openings were oversewn with pledgets after incision of the aneurysm and the secretion of the aneurismal contents, which was white thrombus and mixed thrombus. The fistula was closed directly. After the operation, the patient was released and discharged soon. Postoperative MDCT revealed that the aneurysm had disappeared (Figure 5).
