Occlusion of the left coronary trunk is severe and has significant symptoms, increasing the chances of cardiovascular events even more, since its occlusion compromises left ventricular flow if there is no collateral circulation. For many years in coronary trunk lesions revascularization was the method of choice, however recent studies have been showing good results with the Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). We report a case of a 91-year-old woman with an important lesion of the left coronary artery (TBI) who underwent percutaneous angioplasty and pharmacological stent placement with good clinical recovery.
