Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary artery dissection is a common occurrence after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). However, we report herein a rare case of double-barrel coronary artery dissection occurring 1 year after PTCA for stenosis in the left circumflex coronary artery. The case history and angiographic findings are reported, and relevant literature is reviewed.
