Abstract

Myocardial infarction as a reflection of advanced coronary artery disease is often associated with atherosclerosis of other arteries, especially renal, peripheral and carotid, resulting in chronic renal disease, peripheral artery disease or stoke. Nevertheless, the atherosclerosis is not always the only cause of those diseases. In this article we present a case of a patient with myocardial infarction and concomitant stoke, likely caused by percutaneous coronary intervention.
