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.
