In addition to coronary atherosclerotic disease, coronary thromboembolism can also lead to acute coronary syndromes. However, coronary thromboembolism due to prosthetic heart valves is very rare and not very well-known. It have been reported only a few cases. In this paper, we present a rare case with vasospastic angina pectoris secondary to coronary thromboembolism in a patient with prosthetic heart valves.
