Pulmonary Artery Division for Total Excision and Bypass of Left Main Coronary Artery Aneurysm

1. Abstract
We report a case of left main coronary artery aneurysm repair by excision with bypass of the origins of the left circumflex artery and left anterior descending artery. Currently there is a lack of clear guidelines on how to surgically treat this type of aneurysm. Here we discuss our surgical approach and offer insight on why we believe repair must be done once recognized.
