Abstract

Simultaneous thrombosis of multiple epicardial coronary arteries is an uncommon clinical finding in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We describe a 44 year-old male present with STEMI who was found to have simultaneously occluded two epicardial arteries. There is many clinical states that can lead to multiple thrombosis i.e. essential trombocytosis, hiperhomocysteinaemia, depletion of antitrombin III, cocaine abuse etc. In this particular case L-arginin supplementation and association with thrombosis or atherosclerosis progression is discussed.
