Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe a case in which we successfully treated a major left anterior descending artery rupture with a polytetrafluoroethylene-coated stent. The patient presented with acute antero-apical myocardial infarction 52 days after the initial procedure and cardiac catheterization revealed late stent thrombosis, which was successfully treated by primary angioplasty.
