Stroke following coronary interventions is a devastating and most dreaded complication with significant morbidity and mortality. Various factors have been ascribed for this complication including the technical errors. We hereby describe such a patient who presented to us with the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome and underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) but unfortunately developed left sided hemiparesis due to ischaemic stroke (right middle cerebral artery). She was managed as per the standard treatment protocols for acute coronary syndrome and later on for ischaemic stroke which she nicely responded to and was discharged in a haemodynamically stable condition. On follow-up after 15 days, she was totally symptom-free. We will discuss all the possible preventive and treatment measures for this rare complication of (PCI).
