Abstract

Coronary stent thrombosis is a rare event leading to ST segment elevation myocardial infarction and death. Although early thrombosis of drug-eluting and bare metal stents is relatively frequent, simultaneous thrombosis of bare metal coronary stents has rarely been reported. Here, we present a case of simultaneous subacute thrombosis of two bare metal stents in different coronary arteries early after clopidogrel cessation.
