Simultaneous Massive Coronary Air Embolism and Intraprocedural Stent Thrombosis

Massive coronary air embolism and intraprocedural stent thrombosis are a very infrequent but live-threatening complications of coronary interventions. The simultaneous occurrence of both have never been published yet. In this case report, 50-years-old male, with prior history of dyslipidemia is presented. Coronary air embolism is a rare complication of cardiac catheterization with a known incidence of 0.1% to 0.3% of all the procedures. This case exemplifies that the strategy of using directly a guiding catheter previous the contralateral diagnostic angiography if the EKG changes are manifest, is valid.
