Stent thrombosis is not unusual in a post-operative setting. Use of heparin, aspirin, clopidogrel, and glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa inhibitors in this setting needs to be balanced because of the increased risk of perioperative bleeding. This is of special concern in neurosurgery, where postoperative mass effect from bleeding in a closed space is a serious risk. We describe a unique case of inferior and anterior ST-elevation myocardial infarction in cardiogenic shock during spinal surgery with acute, very late bare-metal stent (BMS) thrombosis in the left anterior descending coronary artery and simultaneous acute thrombotic occlusion of the right coronary artery, treated by primary percutaneous intervention, intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) support and use of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitor in addition to clopidogrel, aspirin, and heparin with good surgical and cardiac outcome. This case report describes first time use of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitor and IABP with heparin, in a patient just after spinal surgery.
