Abstract

Compression of left main coronary artery (LMCA) secondary to pulmonary trunk dilatation is a newly recognized entity that has been associated with severe pulmonary hypertension. In this paperwe present a case of extrinsic compression of LMCA caused by dilated pulmonary trunk secondary to pulmonary hypertension documented using 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) coronary angiography. This case is followed by a review of the literature.
