Abstract

We present a case of a 58-year-old female who underwent elective PCI of the left anterior descending coronary artery. The procedure was complicated by vessel dissections and myocardial infarction. Cardiogenic shock complicated acute coronary syndrome required intraaortic balloon pumping what led to descending aortic dissection successfully treated with stentgraft implantation. However, the patient died due to intractable cardiogenic shock.
