Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This case report describes pathology-proven spontaneous coronary embolization from a calcific aortic valve resulting in an acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. It serves as an important reminder that, especially for elderly patients with coexisting aortic valvular disease, initial treatment for abrupt coronary artery occlusion with aspiration thrombectomy catheterization is standard of care.
