Shepherd's Crook (UPSL0PING) right coronary artery (RCA) is a special situation where RCA origin is not only superiorly oriented but also courses superiorly to some extent before making a U-turn. Presence of Shepherd's Crook RCA along with tortuosity in coronary artery makes the angioplasty very much technically demanding. Here I am reporting a case of Non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction presented with 99% thrombus containing lesion in tortuous and Shepherd's Crook RCA successfully managed with angioplasty.
