A long-term clinical and angiographic follow-up of a case of peripheral coronary stent embolization is reported. No clinical sequelae occurred in the immediate and long-term (five years) follow-up. The five-year follow-up angiographic images provided visual documentation of absence of stent- associated stenosis. This case highlights the concept that fibro-intimal hyperplasia may not occur when plaque and balloon trauma are absent at the site of stent embolization.
