Percutaneous transluminal coronary stenting is a proven nonoperative method of direct myocardial revascularization. We encountered a case of iatrogenic significant subacute left main coronary artery stenosis in a patient who had undergone prior percutaneous transluminal coronary artery stenting of the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. Coronary artery bypass grafting was performed. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a surgical case of left main coronary artery stenosis worsened by changes secondary to earlier coronary stenting in the mid portion of left descending coronary artery in Japan.
