Acute type III perforation caused by failed angioplasty is a lethal complication that often requires emergency operation. However, the presence of multiple rigid stents beneath the subepicardial hematoma disturbs optimal revascularization and hemostasis. Teflon felt (Meadox Medical Inc, Oakland, NJ) wrapping repair is a simple salvage technique that allows stable hemostasis and the rescue of the entire blood flow of the coronary artery. This procedure was successfully performed with type III perforation of the left anterior descending coronary artery on 2 patients subjected to multiple stenting.
