Deployment of a polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent is a useful option to seal coronary perforation. However, the high profile and low flexibility compromise its deliverability. To facilitate stent delivery, deep-vessel intubation with a 5 Fr guiding catheter through a 6 or 7 Fr guiding catheter (mother-and-child catheter) has been used. This case report describes a successful deployment of a polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent through a 5 Fr Heartrail ST01 guiding catheter (Terumo) to seal coronary perforation.
