\"very late bare-metal stent thrombosis\".
Pak Heart J Jan ;48(2):114-7.
Stent thrombosis (ST) is an acute thrombotic occlusion of a stent in a coronary artery. It is a serious complication. An acute myocardial infarction or sudden death is the most common presentation of stent thrombosis. According to Academic Research Consortium classification, ST can be early when occurring within 30 days, late when it occurs between 30 days to 1 year or very late when it occurs after 1 year. Very late ST after drug-eluting stent implantation is rare. But very late ST after bare-metal stent (BMS) implantation is unsual. Here we report a case of ST-elevation myocardial infarction occurring 2 years after BMS implantation (very late ST).
