Catheter-induced coronary artery dissection (CICAD) is a rare but very serious complication of invasive diagnostics and percutaneous treatment of coronary artery disease. The incidence of CICAD is < 0.1% [1]. CICAD is usually treated with stent deployment, less often conservatively and only a small percentage of patients require surgical intervention [1, 2].

In this article, we present the case of a patient with CICAD who, after initial conservative therapy, underwent intravascular ultrasound-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (IVUS-guided PCI).
