Abstract

A 63-year-old woman with typical chest pain referred to our center. Her risk factors were hypertension (HTN), hyperlipidemia (HLP), diabetic mellitus (DM), and smoking. Coronary angiography (CAG) revealed a tubular lesion (95%) in proximal part, and a diffuse lesion (95%) in the mid part of left anterior descending (LAD) with a good distal flow. Stenting of proximal and mid part lesion was done for her with 2 drug-eluting stent (paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system, EURoCOR) with success. After 6 days, due to a typical chest pain without response to medications, the coronary angiography was performed showing a definite fracture of stent which was implanted in the mid part of left anterior descending artery (LAD) 6 days before admission.
