A 78-year-old man with a tight left main and a long calcified disease of the left anterior descending coronary artery refused surgery. After stenting, the patient went into a shock because of a large coronary artery ruptur. Pericardial drainage with blood reinfusion, without heparin reversal, allowed for completion of revascularization.
