Abstract

A 67-year-old female patient complained of exertional precordial chest pain with radiation to the left shoulder occurring over a two-month period. An acute non-Q wave anterior myocardial infarction was diagnosed. On the third day of admission, coronary angiography revealed two-vessel disease with 73% luminal narrowing of the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery and 50% luminal narrowing of the mid-right coronary artery. The initial attempt to implant a NIR stent (Boston Scientific/Scimed, Inc., Maple Grove, Minnesota) was unsuccessful. We report on the successful rescue implantation of two MAC® (Maximum Arterial re-Creation) stents (Advanced Medical Technologies, Germany), in conjunction with the infusion of abciximab for the treatment of an abrupt closure due to thrombus of the left main coronary artery.
