Özet

P>We report a case with exaggerated stent protrusion from the right coronary ostium into the aorta leading to recurrent inferoposterior and right ventricular myocardial infarctions due to stent thrombosis, which were treated successfully with fibrinolysis. The stent was removed via transverse aortotomy and two bypass grafts were performed. Stents protruding from the aorta may not only cause technical difficulties but also carry a high risk of thrombosis.
