BACKGROUND Many studies have suggested that in the era of drug-eluting stents (DES) one of the causes of in-stent restenosis is stent fracture (SF). Yet there have been few studies of the major adverse cardiac events and treatment of DES SF. METHODS AND RESULTS From September 2003 to May 2008, 3365 patients received successful stent implantation with DES, of whom 1009 patients underwent a follow-up coronary angiography irrespective of symptoms. Seventeen SFs were detected in 15/1009 patients… CONTINUE READING
