Iatrogenic Coronary Left Main Artery Dissection Type-F with Time and Lifesaving Bailout Intervention: A Case Report
Abstract

Case Summary: This report describes a case of IACD resulting from the complications of a primary PCI procedure that was successfully managed by deeply engaged the guide catheter into the false lumen and aspirating about 10ml of blood in the hope of reducing the false lumen diameter. Then, the left main true lumen was quickly wired from the ascending aorta and successfully stented. This bailout technique using guide catheter was time and lifesaving. A similar technique using microcatheter in intervention of chronic total occlusion is known.
