We present a case of two missiles in the heart causing coronary artery disease with first onset 44 years after the injury. The missiles were close to the right coronary artery and the left anterior descending coronary artery. The missiles initiated local arteriosclerosis in these vessels, with an extremely stretched time frame from injury to the onset of symptoms for coronary artery disease.
