Here we report a case of a 79-year-old woman with inferior myocardial infarction, transferred to our cath lab to perform a primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). During the procedure, a massive dissection complicated the thrombotic lesion of the right coronary artery (RCA). In this case, we decided to use the MGuard stent to treat both the large dissection and the thrombotic lesion. MGuard stent is a combination of a coronary stent merged with an embolic protection device. After multiple MGuard stent implantation we obtained a complete resolution of the coronary dissection obtaining a patent RCA with normal antegrade flow.
