Coronary stents have marked an era in the interventional cardiology and have significantly decreased the rates of acute restenosis. Although diminished rates of restenosis have been observed with stents with respect to balloon angioplasty, restenosis is still a major problem of the interventional procedures. Stent thrombosis (ST) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a rare and usually poor prognostic event that might result in myocardial infarction (MI) and sudden death .We wanted to summarize the main features of the issue.
