Abstract

Coronary artery dissection is a well-known and frequent complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We report the first case of a Type F dissection following PCI of the distal right coronary artery causing total vessel occlusion that could not be stented but was associated with late spontaneous recanalization and a favorable outcome.
