Discrepancy Between Coronary Angiography and Autopsy FindingSaxer, Till MD*; Burkhardt, Karim MD†; Bendjelid, Karim MD, PhD*The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology: September 2012 - Volume 33 - Issue 3 - p 247–249 doi: 10.1097/PAF.0b013e3181dd5ba1 Case Reports Abstract Author Information This article presents the case of a 71-year-old man who developed septic shock complicated by acute renal failure. Because of clinical suspicion of myocardial infarction, 24 hours before passing away, the patient had a coronary cineangiography. Limited incidences and views have been used to avoid contrast-induced nephropathy and no significant lesions were founded. However, the autopsy revealed significant stenosis of coronary arteries. This case report discusses the paradox of this finding.
