Late stent malapposition (LSM) within a coronary artery aneurysm is an unusual intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) finding at follow up, and has been reported to be more common after drug-eluting stent implantation than after bare-metal stenting. We describe a case of LSM with coronary artery aneurysm 6 months after paclitaxeleluting stent implantation. This unusual case was successfully managed under IVUS guidance.
