Acute myocardial infarction with high thrombus burden poses a challenge to the operating surgeon. Thrombus migration can worsen the clinical condition by further occluding flowing vessels. In our case of acute anterior wall myocardial infarction, thrombus migration from left anterior descending (LAD) caused obstruction of the left circumflex artery (LCX), and ramus. Bailout percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was done to LCX, ramus, and left main which helped the patient hemodynamically but soon succumbed to sudden cardiorespiratory arrest. Hence, bailout PTCA remains a challenging procedure.
