RAMIREZ N, Alfredo et al. Acute myocardial infarction caused by total occlusion of the left main coronary artery.: Report of one case treated with percutaneous endoluminal revascularization. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.7, pp.773-779. ISSN 0034-9887.

We report a 43 years old female who developed an intense precordial pain and arterial hypotension. The patient was admitted to the emergency room in cardiogenic shock. An emergency angiography revealed a total occlusion of the left main coronary artery. An endoluminal coronary angioplasty with the placement of two stents was performed and coronary reperfusion TIMI III was achieved. The patient had a good evolution and one month later, a surgical revascularization was done, to avoid new occlusions. She was discharged in good conditions and in functional capacity I (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 773-9)
