Coronary stenosis

COMMENTS

This case exemplifies an acute occlusion of the right coronary artery - click the "Pre angiogram" button. After thrombolysis of the clot, the proximal obstruction was dilated by balloon angioplasty - click on "Post angiogram". Though flow was restored to the coronary, a discrete moderate stenosis is still present in mid-coronary. It was subsequently successfully dilated by balloon angioplasty.
