No-reflow is an unpredictable complication following percutaneous coronary intervention. No-reflow is associated with myocardial ischemia and infarction and increased mortality. A case of refractory no-reflow is described that was rapidly and successfully treated with multiple infusions of high doses of verapamil and adenosine applied directly at the site of no-reflow through a perfusion catheter.
