A life trapped by a guidewire- A rare sequence of complications after an
eletive coronary angioplasty
Though rare, guidewire loss or fracture after percutaneous coronary
intervention (PCI) can occur. Coronary perforations (CP) are rare
complications of PCI and can be classified as type I (extraluminal
crater), II (myocardial or pericardial blushing) and III (contrast
streaming or cavity spilling).
