Abstract

Coronary perforation is a rare but devastating complication of PCI, requiring rescue devices such as covered stents. This paper documents the successful use of a pericardial covered stent in 9/9 patients for coronary perforation. Pericardial covered stents have theoretical advantages over PTFE covered stents, but clinical studies proving this are not feasible.
