Presence of allergy to iodinated contrast may prevent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to be performed. We present a 76-year-old male with a history of allergic reaction to iodinated contrast who successfully underwent intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and a Doppler guidewire-guided PCI. Stent size was determined based on IVUS. After PCI, stent expansion and a lack of edge dissection or incomplete apposition were confirmed by IVUS and a good antegrade coronary flow was confirmed by a Doppler guidewire. Thus, PCI without contrast injection under IVUS and a Doppler guidewire-guidance may be feasible in selected patients with allergy to iodinated contrast.
