Recently, coronary artery stenting has been successful when used as an intervention for percutaneous coronary artery disease. However, the procedure may frequently produce complications. Although rare, stent dislodgement is one such complication, which may result in serious problems including coronary artery dissection, myocardial infarction, peripheral embolisation and death. Stent dislodgement is known to be an early complication of the coronary artery stenting procedure. In this case report, we present a 53-year-old male with late coronary stent dislodgement. To the best of our knowledge, no such case has been addressed in the literature to date.
