A coronary artery aneurysm is a challenging cli-nical situation due to the lack of sufficient evidence from randomized controlled studies and the lack of consensus on a management strategy. The present case is a description of the exclusion of a middle segment aneurysm of the left circumflex coronary artery using a PK Papyrus covered stent (Biotronik, AG, Bulach, Switzerland). The final images were favorable.

Keywords: Coronary artery aneurysm, covered stent; percutaneous coronary intervention.
