A Case of a Zotarolimus-Eluting Stent Fracture in the Left Anterior Descending Artery in a Patient Undergoing Hemodialysis

Abstract

Although stent fracture after implantation of a drug-eluting stent (DES) is a rare complication, it has been suggested to be a cause of restenosis. To date, most DES fractures have been associated with sirolimus-eluting stents. We describe here a case of a zotarolimus-eluting stent fracture after 8 months of stent placement in a calcified left anterior descending artery lesion in a patient undergoing hemodialysis.
