Myocardial Infarction in a Premenopausal Woman on Leuprolide Therapy.

Perez IE, Menegus MA, Taub CC - Case Rep Med (2015)

Bottom Line: Premenopausal women with chest pain syndrome may have nonatherosclerotic coronary arteries with abnormal coronary flow.Estrogens have cardioprotective effect improving coronary vasodilatation.This case report discusses the consequences of leuprolide use by decreasing estrogen levels which led to acute myocardial infarction.

ABSTRACT
Premenopausal women with chest pain syndrome may have nonatherosclerotic coronary arteries with abnormal coronary flow. Estrogens have cardioprotective effect improving coronary vasodilatation. This case report discusses the consequences of leuprolide use by decreasing estrogen levels which led to acute myocardial infarction.

fig2: Cardiac catheterization demonstrating severe mid to distal LAD occlusion.

Mentions: She was found to have a long, tortuous 99% mid and distal left anterior descending (LAD) lesion with Grade I flow (Figure 2). The entire segment was dilated with 1.5 and 2.0 mm balloons and stented with three Zotarolimus-eluting stents, two 2.25 × 30 mm and one 2.25 × 18 mm, and postdilated with 2.0 mm and 2.75 mm balloons with Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) III Grade flow restored (Figure 3). The right and left circumflex coronary vessels were angiographically normal.
