抄録

Coronary stent infection is considered to be a rare but catastrophic complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. In this report, we present a 72-year-old man who developed a coronary stent infection complicated by coronary aneurysm and purulent pericarditis. Coronary artery aneurysm resolved over a period of 8 months following the successful management of infection with intensive antibiotic therapy alone. This case suggests that conservative therapy can be a therapeutic option in patients with high operative risks.
