Abstract

We describe two cases of late stent thrombosis (> 30 days postprocedure) following stenting without brachytherapy. Stent thrombosis was confirmed after successful treatment by catheter-based rheolytic thrombectomy. Predictors of stent thrombosis are reviewed and issues concerning the duration of combination antiplatelet therapy after stenting are discussed.
