Primary stenting in a patient with acute myocardial infarction and primary antiphospholipid syndrome

J Invasive Cardiol. 2002 Apr;14(4):194-7.


We present a patient who had recurrent coronary thrombosis due to primary antiphospholipid syndrome. The patient was treated with streptokinase during the first myocardial infarction and primary stenting during reinfarction. To our knowledge, this is the first case in which the occluded right coronary artery was treated with primary stent implantation.
