Rapid restoration of thrombolysis in myocardial infarction III in case of no-reflow during percutaneous coronary intervention is imperative. Application of punctured coronary balloon intracoronary injection of sodium nitroprusside is a prompt, safe and effective method. To investigate the effectiveness of intracoronary injection of sodium nitroprusside via punctured coronary balloon in the treatment of no-reflow in coronary artery is the main objective of the study. We retrospectively analyzed 76 patients treated with intracoronary injection of sodium nitroprusside via punctured coronary balloon for coronary no-reflow. All 76 patients successfully completed intracoronary injection of sodium nitroprusside with the improvement of no-reflow in coronary artery for thrombolysis in myocardial infarction grade III in 74 patients. There were two complications which occurred in the early application of this technique. One was a punctured coronary balloon fracture left in the distal coronary artery and the other was a difficult pullback of the punctured coronary balloon catheter. After improving the application method, later no more complications occurred in 67 patients and no complications such as coronary guide wire pulling out of the coronary artery, coronary artery dissection, coronary artery perforation and coronary artery air embolism occurred. Coronary no-reflow treatment with intracoronary injection of sodium nitroprusside via punctured coronary balloon is safe and effective when properly applied.
