          Abstract

          Late stent thrombosis in the era of routine high-pressure stent deployment and combined antiplatelet therapy with thienopyridines and aspirin has become a rare but feared complication. We describe a patient with acute myocardial infarction due to late stent thrombosis 6 weeks after deployment of a sirolimus-eluting stent and 2 weeks after the discontinuation of clopidogrel. This is the first report of late thrombosis of a sirolimus-eluting stent. Copyright 2003 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
