Abstract

Compression of the left main coronary artery by a dilated pulmonary artery can be a life-threatening condition. It can present with angina, symptoms of left ventricular dysfunction, and sudden death. Diagnosis and treatment of this condition is very important. We demonstrate significant compression of the left main coronary artery on coronary angiography and thorax CT examinations.
