Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report on the novel use of endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) capture stent for the treatment of left main coronary artery disease (CAD) for a patient who required a high risk non-cardiac surgery for his rapidly expanding abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Instead of using bare metal stent, we decided to use the EPC capture stent to treat his left main disease as it had a unique "pro-healing" properties. We were able to reduce his peri-operative risk and he underwent the AAA surgery successfully with no adverse events. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of the successful use of EPC capture stent for the treatment of left main CAD before a high risk non-cardiac surgery for AAA.
