The incidence of calcified debris coronary embolism after aortic valve replacement (AVR) with a bioprosthesis is a rare but potentially life-threatening condition. We sought to describe a case of immediate postoperative left main coronary artery embolism, resulting to severe acute coronary syndrome and cardiogenic shock, after aortic valve surgery due to severe aortic valve stenosis, with the use of bioprosthesis. Complex interventional procedures and possible diagnostic challenges are being described.
