However, a few hours after the surgery, the Japanese teacher suffered from low blood pressure and pain in left chest. Scanning results showed that the patient had acute cardiac failure and right-circumflex artery.

This artery must be treated with stent placement to allow normal blood flow to resume; therefore, the surgeons then conducted an emergency stent placement surgery immediately.

Presently, the teacher gains consciousness with stable blood pressure and stop using drugs.
