Abstract

A 48 year old man undergoing mitral valve replacement sustained an intraoperative embolism to the left main coronary artery. This resulted in acute cardiac decompensation in spite of all conventional resuscitative measures. The condition was suspected, and successful coronary embolectomy was carried out through an ascending aortotomy. Following this, the postoperative course was uneventful.
