Catheter induced left main coronary artery dissection is a rare but well recognized life threatening complication of coronary angiography and angioplasty. We present a case of left main coronary artery dissection induced with a guide catheter while dealing with chronic total occlusion (CTO) and bailout stenting of left main and Left anterior descending (LAD) artery.
