Abstract

Infectious complications after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty are uncommon and can occur at any point of time leading to high morbidity and mortality. We report a case of delayed coronary artery stent infection and rupture, with epicardial infected false aneurysm formation, and right coronary artery to right atrium fistula formation, presenting after one month of pyrexia.
