Coronary obstruction by a calcific pericardial ring

, : Coronary obstruction by a calcific pericardial ring. Annals of Thoracic Surgery 74(2): 595-597

We report the unique case of a 62-year-old man whose left anterior descending artery was intermittently obstructed by a heavily calcified pericardial ring. This is a rare case in which a coronary artery has been compressed because of constrictive pericarditis.
