Acute Myocardial Infarction Caused by Multiple Coronary Artery Embolisms Coronary artery embolism is a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome that is scarcely documented. Only a few case reports have been published but lack of solid angiographic evidence. We describe a 32-year old man without history of cardiovascular disease with a first episode of acute myocardial infarction with angiographic evidence of multiple thromboembolisms of the coronary arteries who developed cardiogenic shock and died. We review the causes and the clinical presentations of coronary artery embolism.
