Microcatheters are often used for percutaneous coronary intervention via the retrograde approach through a collateral channel for chronic total occlusion lesions. Recently, we encountered an alarming case in which a septal collateral artery was dilated after the removal of a microcatheter. This dilated septal artery ruptured spontaneously and resulted in a cardiac tamponade, which was successfully treated by pericardiocentesis and coil embolization. (J Interven Cardiol 2011;24:73-76).
