A 66-year-old female was referred for primary coronary intervention because of acute inferior STelevation myocardial infarction. Electrocardiography also showed atrial fibrillation. Coronary angiography showed a distal occlusion of the right coronary artery. Two different wires did not pass the occlusion, but dislodged the apparent thrombus more distally. No abnormalities were seen in the course of the recanalised part of the vessel. The sequential angiographic images together with the presence of atrial fibrillation are highly suggestive of coronary embolism as the cause of the myocardial infarction. Anticoagulation and rate control strategy was initiated. The patient was discharged in good condition. (Neth Heart J 2009;17:297-9.).
