Angiographic diagnosis and treatment of spontaneous coronary artery dissection is challenging. Complementary use of intracoronary imaging can provide information to guide percutaneous treatments, particularly in these challenging settings. Here we report a case of a 52-year-old woman presenting with an anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction caused by a spontaneous, long, and spiral dissection of the left anterior descending artery. Intracoronary imaging allowed us to visualize the entry port of the coronary dissection which was not sealed by the first angio-guided stenting. This case demonstrates that, beyond merely diagnostic information, the intracoronary imaging is able to provide information to guide percutaneous treatments, particularly in challenging settings in which coronary angiography reveals its limitations.
