Surgical balloon catheter fenestration and thrombectomy for spontaneous
coronary artery dissection
A 51-year-old female presented with left anterior descending spontaneous
coronary artery dissection (SCAD). After initial treatment with
conservative therapy, she developed recurrent chest pain and complete
thrombosis of the LAD. Using a novel hybrid treatment, she was
revascularized with balloon catheter thrombectomy and fenestration,
followed by coronary artery bypass grafting.
