Abstract: An unusual case of a 53-year-old male with a right coronary artery originating from the left sinus of Valsalva is presented. Despite acute myocardial infarction due to occlusion of the aberrant right coronary artery (RCA), PTCA was not immediately performed. After 81 mg/day of aspirin had been administered for 1 month, PTCA to the subtotal stenosis of the RCA resulted in failure due to poor deployment of the guiding catheters complicated by withdrawal and uncrossing of a guiding wire. However, complete recanalization occurred after giving the patient 162 mg/day of aspirin for 8 months. Low dose aspirin was effective in recanalizing the subtotal stenosis after failed PTCA.
