Abstract

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.
