Very late stent thrombosis with bare-metal stent: identifying severe stent malapposition and underexpansion by intravascular ultrasound

Adriano Caixeta, Vanessa Cristina Salomon Palma Braga, Gary S Mintz

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082013000300017

A 60-year-old man with a history of implantation of two bare-metal stents 2 years prior presented to the emergency department with new-onset chest pain. He has been regularly taking angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors, beta blockers and aspirin. Aspirin was suspended for 10 days prior to the current hospitalization in order to perform surgery to remove a kidney tumor. He underwent coronary angiography, which revealed a right coronary artery with a distal intraluminal defect within the stents, suggesting thrombus. Intravascular ultrasound demonstrated […]

Objective:To evaluate the incidence of major adverse cardiac events (cardiac death, or acute myocardial infarct, or target vessel revascularization) at one year in “real world” patients.METHODS:The EINSTEIN registry is an observational, prospective, single center study that consecutively included 103 patients (152 lesions) treated with the BiomatrixTM stent, a biolimus A9-eluting stent with biodegradable polymer.RESULTS:The mean age was 65.0±12.4 years; male gender represented 83.5% of the patients; and 37.9% of them were diabetic. At one-year, major adverse cardiac events occurred in […]
