Abstract

We present the case of a 57-year-old male patient with a diagnosis of non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Taking into consideration the clinical presentation and angiographic findings, the patient was qualified for emergent percutaneous coronary intervention with aspiration thrombectomy and bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation (BVS; Absorb, Abbott), with good angiographic result.
