Extract

A 54-year-old man was referred for an abnormality detected on a routine preoperative chest radiograph (for ophthalmological surgery). He had a history notable for a myocardial infarction that occurred 18 years ago, followed 1 year later by a four-vessel coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The patient was symptom-free until 1 year ago, when mild angina symptoms recurred. He was a smoker known to have arterial hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and peptic ulcer disease, which were well controlled with appropriate medication. There was no history of trauma. The physical examination was not contributory.
