Abstract

Epicardial hematoma can manifest immediately or within a few minutes to hours after coronary intervention. Review of angiogram after the diagnosis of hematoma, in our case, showed deep distal positioning of a non-polymer jacketed wire, which is the most likely cause of the adverse outcome. Multimodality imaging is critical for diagnosis and management of such cases.
