Abstract

Treatment of acute coronary syndromes secondary to septic coronary valvular embolism in endocarditis patients remains unclear. Several revascularization strategies have been described, including thromboaspiration, stent implantation, balloon angioplasty, and surgical intervention. We herein present an illustration of an atypical case of an acute coronary syndrome related to a coronary bifurcation occlusion due to a septic embolism in a patient presenting with infective endocarditis. We also summarized previous similar cases and their management.
