A middle age female presented with chest pain. She was a daily marijuana user. Coronary Angiography (CAG) revealed a focal severe ostial stenosis in the Left Anterior Descending (LAD) artery. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) demonstrated twisted ostial LAD resulting in severe stenosis. Resolute stent was implanted from Left Main into proximal LAD. It was interpreted as a kink leading to severe occlusion.
