One quarter of patients with STEMI submitted to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) need repeated target vessel revascularization (TVR) because of stent restenosis or thrombosis. Introduction of DES has effectively reduced the incidence of these complications but the safety of this type of stent in the setting of AMI is limited due to the unpredictable risk of stent malapposition and vessel remodelling in the long term follow-up. Recently, treatment with drug eluting balloon (DEB) in association with bare metal stenting (BMS) has been reported to have an excellent efficacy and safety profile. However, little is known regarding the extent of stent coverage in BMS after DEB utilization.
