Coronary perforation is a rare but serious complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We report a case of coronary perforation during PCI in a post cardiac surgery patient presenting as unusual ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, secondary to compression of an epicardial artery by a localized hematoma, secondary to coronary perforation by the guidewire.
