Abstract

A case of 51-year-old woman who was admitted to Department of Cardiology and Internal Medicine in Bydgoszcz due to unstable angina pectoris with elevated level of troponin I is presented. The patient underwent optical coherence tomography-guided angioplasty of the proximal left anterior descending artery with an implantation of everolimus-eluting stent. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) visualized a plaque or thrombus prolaps between stent struts that was undetectable by intravascular ultrasound. A postdylatation with a bigger balloon was performed. Final OCT imaging revealed a well apposed and expanded coronary stent without any tissue prolaps between struts.
