Abstract

Stent thrombosis (ST) is an uncommon but highly morbid complication of percutaneous coronary interventions. The mechanisms leading to ST are heterogeneous, likely accounting for the variable timing and outcomes of ST. For the clinician, it is important to recognize major risk factors for ST, including discontinuation of dual antiplatelet therapy. Once ST occurs, management includes intensive antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapies. Newer antiplatelet agents may reduce the risk of ST and possibly minimize adverse outcomes after presentation with ST.
