Abstract:

Spontaneous recanalization of a stenotic atherosclerotic lesion is a rare finding. We report a 66-year-old man with severe discrete stenosis at the distal part of the left anterior descending candidated for percutaneous intervention. However, before stent deployment, the patient showed complete relief of the stenotic lesion.
