A case of a patient suffering from myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation 26 years ago is presented. Systemic thrombolysis was not possible due to recent bleeding from a duodenal ulcer. Therefore, an urgent percutaneous coronary revascularization was successfully carried out, the first such procedure in Slovenia. The revascularization was successful, the hospital course uneventful, and the patient remained asymptomatic for the following two years. Despite the progression of coronary atherosclerosis, the infarction-affected artery remained patent.
