Abstract

A case is presented of a 65-year-old male who presented with an acute anterior wall myocardial infarction. An initial coronary angiogram demonstrated an ulcerated atherosclerotic plaque in the left main coronary artery. After 48 h of aggressive medical therapy including a 2b3a glycoprotein blocking agent, repeat angiography demonstrated resolution of the ulcerated plaque. The process of atherosclerotic plaque rupture is of dynamic nature.
