Abstract

We report a case of successful treatment of coronary artery perforation and cardiac tamponade with an autologous vein graft-coated stent, which were developed during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. The method reported here may be an effective alternative to emergency surgery and should be considered when coronary artery perforation does not respond to conventional prolonged inflation with perfusion catheter.
