Primary coronary stenting is one of the established therapeutic options for acute myocardial infarction. The risk of balloon rupture during stenting may be increased after high pressure inflation technique was introduced. Balloon rupture during stenting may cause catastrophic complications such as extensive dissection, acute closure, coronary perforation. We report a case of balloon rupture during primary stenting in acute myocardial infarction, which caused acute thrombotic closure of target and remote coronary arteries simultaneously.
