Abstract

Despite continuous improvement in balloon-catheter and guidewire technology, acute coronary occlusion after PTCA occurs in 2–5% [1, 2]. With increasing numbers of multiple stenoses that are dilated, this complication has become an even greater problem. In most cases, the underlying mechanism is a dissection, resulting in luminal obstruction by an intimal flap [3–5].
