Özet

Spontaneous coronary artery rupture is rarely seen and most of the reorted cases in the world literature are related to rupture of a coronary artery aneurysm or of a saphenous vein graft. There is no report in the literature of a patient with spontaneous coronary artery perforation due to disruption of coronary atherosclerotic plaque. We can confirm that our patient is the first to be successfully treated with intracoronary grafted stent implantation for spontaneous coronary artery perforation as a result of disruption of atherosclerotic plaque.
