An unusual case of ST-segment
elevation myocardial infarction following a late bare-metal stent fracture in a
native coronary artery: a case report
A bare-metal stent fracture as a
cause of acute coronary thrombosis and consequently of acute coronary syndrome
is a rare clinical event that, to the best of our knowledge, has previously not
been reported. A stent fracture is a rare complication arising from
percutaneous coronary intervention.
We present, to the best of our
knowledge, the first documented case of ST-segment elevation myocardial
infarction in a patient following a late bare-metal stent fracture and
thrombosis in a native coronary artery. The patient, a 51-year-old Caucasian
man, was treated successfully with primary percutaneous coronary intervention
and a new stent implantation.
A coronary stent fracture is a
rare complication that has been described in venous bypass grafts deploying
either a drug-eluting stent or a bare-metal stent. Stent fractures rarely occur
in coronary arteries. In light of the non-specific presentation of stent
fracture, it is also an easily missed complication. Patients may present with a
non-specific symptom of angina. The angina could either be stable or unstable
as a result of restenosis or in-stent thrombosis, or both. Our case
demonstrates the most severe consequences of a bare-metal stent fracture
(sudden coronary thrombosis and subsequent myocardial infarction) in a native
coronary artery. It was diagnosed angiographically and treated early and
