Abstract

Stent thrombosis (ST) is an acute thrombotic occlusion in the stented segment of a coronary artery. It is a serious complication that frequently presents as an acute myocardial infarction and/or sudden death. The most recently accepted definition established by the Academic Research Consortium classifies ST as: early (occurring within 30 days), late (30 days to 1 year) or very late (after 1 year). Very late ST has been reported following drug-eluting stent implantation with rates up to 0.6% per year. However, very late ST is unusual after bare-metal stent (BMS) implantation. Here we report a case of patient presenting with ST-elevation myocardial infarction due to very late ST occurring 2 years after BMS implantation.

Keywords: Stent thrombosis, Percutaneous coronary intervention, Bare metal stent, Drug eluting stent
