Abstract


Nowadays, one of the modalities in performing reperfusion in coronary artery disease is
percutaneous coronary intervention. Before drug eluting stent era, the problem that occurs the
most among interventional cardiologists is restenosis. After drug eluting stent era, restenosis
can be reduced significantly. Unfortunately, it further develops another problem, that is called
stent thrombosis. Mechanism of stent thrombosis is related to vascular response, thrombosis,
coagulation, and clinical factors. Based on our experience, non-ST elevation acute myocardial
infarction is caused by probable acute stent thrombosis after drug eluting stent implantation.
Therefore, the prevention and therapeutic approaches should be put first in our priority because
it can provide a serious complication.
