Coronary artery aneurysms represent anomalies identified in 0.1 to 4.9% of patients undergoing coronary angiograms. Atherosclerosis is the main cause of coronary artery aneurysms and patients have an increased risk for thrombosis and distal embolization, eventually becoming a potential cause for myocardial infarction. We present 64 year old female who presented with left sided exertional chest pain, fatigue and associated lightheadedness. CT Angiogram of coronary arteries showed 30% stenosis in mid LAD, 8mm saccular aneurysm in a large sized left circumflex artery with suspicion of 3-4mm saccular aneurysm within proximal obtuse margin branch. 8mm aneurysm was successfully sealed with 4X16 mm covered JOMED stent without any residual aneurysm, endoleak or dissection; with TIMI 3 flow and 0% residual stenosis. On one year follow-up, patient was free of angina.
