Dextrocardia is a rare condition with mirror-image position of the heart. Given the rarity of this condition, percutaneous coronary intervention in dextrocardia can be technically challenging. A modification in catheter manipulation and image acquisition technique is required for a successful procedure. We report a case of non-ST elevation myocardial infarction in a 55-year-old male patient with dextrocardia, managed successfully with coronary angioplasty of the right coronary artery through the left transradial route.
