We present here the case of acute coronary syndrome (ST elevation myocardial infarction) with total occlusion of right coronary artery successfully treated with PCI and stenting during COVID-19 pandemics.
Cystic adventitial disease (CAD) is a very rare vascular disorder with prevalence as low as 1:1000 of all vascular pathologies (1). This disease most frequently occurs in young or middle-aged male patients with male/female ratio of 5/1

We demonstrated that in cases when the antergrade access to CTO is not possible, femoral vein retrograde access with transseptal puncture with coronary intervention and stenting can be used successfully.
Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the preferred reperfusion therapy for ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients in the first 12 hours after symptom onset, provided it can be performed quickly (120 minutes from STEMI diagnosis) by an experienced team
