A 70-year-old man with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD), disseminated atherosclerosis, heart failure with mildly reduced ejection fraction, hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2 and prostate cancer was admitted to the Department of Cardiology because of low effort tolerance for further cardiological assessment before chemotherapy of prostate cancer. Due to the progression of CAD in coronarography, he was consulted at the Heart Team meeting and classified for two-step percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). After PCI of the left anterior descending artery, he had a myocardial infarction with the ejection fraction decreased from 43% to 28%.
