Stent thrombosis is one of the most feared complications after coronary stenting, because it often presents in a catastrophic way, triggering death or acute myocardial infarction. Previous studies report mechanical risk factors of stent thrombosis such as stent underexpansion and vessel dissection. This is a case report of early stent thrombosis associated with bare metal stent dislodgement because of dissolution of a mural thrombus in an unappreciated coronary artery aneurysm.
