Purpose The aim of the study is to present the success of an endovascular procedure for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patient with high-risk non-ST elevation myocardial infarct (NSTEMI) after early percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Case Report A 56-year-old man came to our emergency room with a history of early PCI in the previous hospital and received dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). His COVID-19 test result was unknown. This patient was then being re-examined and was diagnosed with ruptured AAA. Despite his pending COVID-19 laboratory results, we decided to perform an urgent endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) in this patient, considering his DAPT consumption history. The procedure was successful and the patient's condition after EVAR showed improvements. Conclusion In patients with ruptured AAA with high-risk NSTEMI who just underwent early PCI and recently received DAPT, endovascular procedure can be considered as the treatment of choice since open surgery repair is contraindicated.
