We describe two patients with in-stent thrombosis occurring 4 and 21 months after implantation of sirolimus-eluting stents. Both cases occurred following noncardiac surgery. In both cases, aspirin had been stopped prior to surgery. Both patient sustained a severe myocardial infarction; one died. The occurrence of late thrombosis of sirolimus-eluting stents is of concern.
