Abstract

Posttraumatic saccular aneurysm of the right coronary artery is a rare complication of nonpenetrating chest trauma. We observed a posttraumatic coronary aneurysm for 3 years and noted that the aneurysm has changed in shape, with partial obliteration of the aneurysm sac, and that its clinical course was uneventful with conservative treatment. Surgical removal of aneurysms has been advocated in the literature; however, conservative medical treatment and a wait-and-see policy can be considered as a treatment modality for posttraumatic coronary aneurysm.
