Double stenting as a treatment for stent collapse in the left main coronary artery

J Invasive Cardiol. 1999 May;11(5):305-8.


We report on a case of double stent implantation in the left main coronary artery due to collapse of the first implanted stent. The case illustrates a complication of stenting presumably dictated by the specific characteristics of left main disease, and the feasibility and good long-term results of double stenting in this situation.
