The article discusses and presents images relative to successful stenting of stenotic lesion and spontaneous dissection of left internal mammary artery graft. It tells of a 75-year-old man who's admitted with sudden onset central chest pain, which was provoked by lifting a heavy bookcase. It mentions that the patient had been asymptomatic since his coronary bypass grafting eight years ago.
