Abstract

A right coronary artery dissection occurring during angioplasty was initially treated with a balloon of the same size of the vessel utilizing a prolonged inflation (over 3 hours) without achieving a satisfactory result. The subsequent use of an oversized balloon inflated for a short period of time gave a satisfactory angiographic result. Favorable clinical and angiographic follow-up was obtained at 3 months. Use of prolonged inflations and of an oversized balloon appears a valuable approach to treat a coronary dissection during angioplasty.
