CASE REPORT: A 43-year-old man died of sepsis 5 months following placement of a paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) in the left circumflex coronary artery to treat in-stent restenosis of a sirolimus-eluting stent (SES). Micro-CT three-dimensional images of the overlapping stents were notable for numerous connecting element fractures along the length of the SES. No fractures were observed in the PES. The greatest area of luminal narrowing is related to the region of most extensive stent fracture. Micro-CT of en bloc specimens provides high resolution (16 μm), three-dimensional images allowing for visualization of the stented arterial segment in a nondestructive manner.
