When these factors were analyzed, the researchers found that the risk of stent thrombosis
is the primary cause of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction following coronary stent implantation: A five year follow-up of the SORT OUT II study.
Here we describe a case of very late stent thrombosis
in a patient with CO poisoning.
This was the likely cause of two-vessel stent thrombosis
leading to STEMI.
Incomplete stent apposition and very late stent thrombosis
after drug-eluting stent implantation.
At one year, researchers found that high platelet reactivity was significantly associated with stent thrombosis
Interestingly, the pattern of events over time was distributed differentially, with both devices having the same incidence of stent thrombosis
, but C-ES having fewer late, but more very late, stent thrombosis
than Z-ES," the authors noted.
The mean age of patients suffering from stent thrombosis
Secondary clinical endpoints include stent thrombosis
and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) at 30, 60, 180, 360 and 540 days.
Ticlopidine is given following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), also known as coronary stent implantation, to lower the risk of stent thrombosis
Even for preventing stent thrombosis
it was not being used as physicians have not yet developed confidence using this drug.
The stent system, which incorporates SurModics' proprietary Finale Prohealing coating technology and Paragon's unique low-profile coronary stent system, is designed to address late stent thrombosis
, a serious complication occurring in a small percentage of coronary stent cases.
