Abstract

Catheter-related iatrogenic left main coronary artery dissection is an extremely rare complication that can cause fatal outcomes if not recognized and treated early. In the current approach, conservative follow-up, bailout stenting with percutaneous intervention and bypass surgery treatment options are available. However, in some centers, coronary angiography and interventional applications are performed without surgical support. Management of such rare but important complications becomes more complex in these centers. In this experience, we wanted to share after her approval, how we managed catheter-induced iatrogenic left main coronary artery dissection in a 72-year-old female patient with bailout stenting and conservative approach in a center without surgical back up.
