Abstract

We report here on a case of ascending aortic dissection combined with anterior myocardial infarction that was caused by a retrograde dissection into the left main coronary trunk and proximal left anterior descending artery. We successfully treated this with stenting of the left main coronary artery and proximal left anterior descending artery, and this allowed for the definitive surgical correction. Stenting a collapsed left main coronary artery can be lifesaving procedure and serve as a bridge to surgery.
