Abstract

Acute myocardial infarction during pregnancy is a rare clinical condition. We present a case of a 36-year old woman in her 36th week of pregnancy with an acute anterior ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) caused by an occlusive proximal LAD. First treatment was thrombosuction, followed by placement of a bioresolvable vascular scaffold. Because of post procedural fetal bradycardia an emergency cesarean section was performed on the same day, despite all antithrombotic medications.
