The placement of a Palmaz-Schatz stent may be associated with the development of a dissection and this may increase the danger of coronary thrombosis. In this case report we describe the use of half of the Palmaz-Schatz stent to cover such a dissection. The use of the half stent, by reducing the amount of metal and stent overlapping, may reduce the incidence of thrombosis and restenosis.
