This report describes the simultaneous use of both peripheral and coronary distal protection techniques to prevent no-reflow phenomena in a large sequential saphenous vein graft. The use of a large peripheral stent allowed for simultaneous distal protection while advancing the larger-lumen stent over both wires, resulting in safe deployment.
