This report describes the first application of intracoronary stenting to the septal perforator coronary artery in a patient with a totally occluded left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and a patent venous graft to the distal LAD. The procedure was successful and resulted in almost complete relief of class III angina. Therefore, diseased large septal perforators may cause angina and be treated effectively by intracoronary stentine in selected cases.
