Retrograde percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction following blunt chest trauma.

Summary of "Retrograde percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction following blunt chest trauma."

A 78-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department because of chest pain following blunt chest trauma. Chest X-ray revealed multiple rib fractures. However, electrocardiogram showed ST elevation in inferior leads suggesting acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Emergency coronary angiography revealed normal left coronary artery and occluded proximal right coronary artery. Thus, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was performed immediately. Antegrade PCI was unsuccessful due to a very large false lumen, which was caused by a blunt trauma. However, retrograde guidewire (GW) manipulation was relatively easy to negotiate the occluded lesion. After GW externalization, we deployed two drug eluting stents for this lesion. To our knowledge, this is the first case of retrograde PCI that led to a successful reperfusion therapy for AMI following blunt chest trauma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions


A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.

A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
