Abstract

FERREIRA, Victor Rodrigues Ribeiro et al. Coronary artery bypass graft surgery after acute myocardial infarction caused by thrombosis of coronary aneurysm. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.4, pp. 667-669. ISSN 0102-7638.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5935/1678-9741.20110061.

The morphology of coronary aneurysm sets a predisposing factor to thrombus formation. However, the blood stasis caused by the change in flow may not be enough to cause thromboembolic events.

Keywords : Myocardial infarction; Coronary thrombosis; Coronary aneurysm.
