Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a chronic clonal myeloproliferative disorder, which is often complicated by arterial or venous thrombosis and idiopathic bleeding diathesis. The present study reports a female patient with ET complicated by acute myocardial infarction, leading to ventricular aneurysm following interventional therapy for 3 years and a subsequent in-stent restenosis. Following careful examination, a ventricular aneurysm resection and coronary artery bypass graft were carried out. During this case, the monitoring and controlling of the platelet count, pre- and post-operatively, was extremely important for successful surgery.
