  • Look Inside

We report a case of reversible collateral flow between the right coronary artery (RCA) and the left coronary artery (LCA). A 55 year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of chest oppression. Cardiac catheter-ization revealed 99% stenosis to seg. ①. We found good collareral vessels from LCA to RCA. We performed PTCA (Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angio-plasty) on this lesion. PTCA was successful and this lesion improved (99%→40%). After PTCA, collateral vessels had disappeared. After one year, the patient had chest oppression on effort again.
