Abstract

Occlusion of a septal perforator branch alone, without the involvement of the left anterior descending coronary artery, leading to acute myocardial infarction is unusual. We report a case in which an isolated severely stenotic thrombus-containing first septal artery causing intractable post-myocardial infarction angina was successfully dilated and stented.
