Case Reports

Septal perforator arteries play an important role in the blood supply of the anterior interventricular septum. Their intramyocardial course makes them inaccessible for coronary bypass revascularization. Although modern catheter-based techniques might be superior to coronary bypass grafting in offering the most complete revascularization in selected patient populations, a systematic review of the literature revealed a paucity of data regarding the outcome of these patients. The present report describes coronary stent implantation in a dominant septal perforator artery and the analysis of the anatomic relationship between the stent and the intraventricular septum using a new imaging technique, catheter-based intracardiac ultrasound.
