PMID:  2044248     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a patient with acute occlusion of left main coronary artery with only a small increase of cardiac enzymes but without electrocardiographic signs of acute myocardial infarction. Normal global and regional left ventricular function could be documented angiographically. Damage of myocardium was prevented by extensive collateral circulation from a large dominant right coronary artery.
