Covered stent: a novel percutaneous treatment of iatrogenic aortic dissection during coronary angioplasty. Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a case of bidirectional dissection, with antegrade extension to the right coronary artery and retrograde extension to the sinus of Valsalva and the ascending aorta. The aortocoronary dissection appeared during percutaneous angioplasty to the right coronary artery. The entry site was successfully sealed by a covered stent.
