Successful Treatment of a Left Main Thrombus by Intracoronary Eptifibatide Infusion in a 36-Year-Old Patient
J Teh Univ Heart Ctr
The acute coronary syndrome due to the left main coronary artery (LMCA) thrombosis is a clinically rare and catastrophic event. We describe a young man (smoker, alcoholic, and drug abuser) with a history of recent surgery and typical chest pain who had non-occlusive LMCA thrombosis in coronary angiography. The thrombosis was successfully treated with two 180 µ/kg intracoronary boluses of eptifibatide, which was continued through an intravenous infusion at 2 µ/kg/min for 48 hoursfatcat:x5mahwxlnzha5e6rqquzqolqqy
