A 53-year-old diabetic male with sternal dehiscence presented with recurrent staphylococcus bacteremia 2 years after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). He was found to have a giant right coronary artery (RCA) pseudoaneurysm and a coronary cameral fistula on imaging. Due to excessive surgical risk, the patient underwent percutaneous treatment with a 5 mm Amplatzer vascular plug 4 (St. Jude Medical, St.Paul, MN). Post-procedure imaging showed successful cessation of flow into the pseudoaneurysm and follow-up CT scan demonstrated significant improvement in the size of the pseudoaneurysm.
