Abstract

ST elevation in the anterior leads may be due to isolated right ventricular infarction associated with occlusion of a nondominant or codominant right coronary artery. The authors report a case of isolated right ventricular infarction from a dominant right coronary artery's proximal occlusion in the presence of collateral circulation provided by the left coronary artery. Extensive damage occurred owing to compromise of the collateral circulation during primary coronary angioplasty. This is an unusual angiographic pattern for isolated right ventricular infarction. The potential consequences of percutaneous interventions to collateral vessels is discussed.
