Abstract: Stent dislodgment or embolisation of a stent before deployment is a well known but feared problem in interventional cardiology with hazardous potential for the patient. Typically, dislodged stents are found in the treated vessel or embolise to the systemic circulation. Embolisation of an undeployed stent from one coronary artery to another has never been reported before. Knowledge and early recognition of this complication is mandatory because of its possible major clinical implications.
