Abstract

Cardiac revascularisation in a high-risk patient - case report: A case of a patient with left main stem stenosis and significant stenosis in the other coronary arteries is presented. The patient was disqualified from coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) because of many surgical risk factors and underwent successful coronary angioplasty. Three months later the patient returned to the hospital because of unstable angina. Control coronary angiography revealed in-stent restenosis. The patient underwent CABG and drug-eluting stent implantation with good clinical result.
