Poster Abstract

Normally, coronary revascularization with a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) leads to restoration of normal coronary blood flow through the coronary arteries, with reperfusion of the myocardium. However, there is a group of patients who do not benefit from the prompt restoration of antegrade flow, as they fail to show resolution of the indirect signs of ischemia such as electrocardiographic (ECG) changes and improvements in perfusion abnormalities. This condition is referred to as the “no-reflow phenomenon.” In this case report, we will discuss the case of a patient who developed coronary no-reflow immediately following PCI.
