We report on a 65-year-old patient who underwent a semi-urgent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for a very late stent subthrombosis (13 months) in a paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) while still on dual antiplatelet therapy.The procedure was complicated by a retrograde embolization into the circumflex artery (CFX). We will focus on the risk of distal embolization after primary PCI for acute stent thrombosis and its prevention.
