The management of patients with drug eluting stents (DES) who require early surgical intervention prior to the completion of antiplatelet therapy is challenging. Available literature suggests that bridging these high risk patients with glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (g2b3a) inhibitors could be efficacious in preventing stent thrombosis. [1] However, this still remains to be proven in larger prospective studies. We report a case of stent thrombosis in a patient with DES planned for neurosurgery while on bridging g2b3a inhibitors therapy in the perioperative period. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
