Abstract

We present a case of a very late stent thrombosis which occurred 13 months after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. The DES was off-label used in a high-risk patient and was followed by 12-month clopidogrel administration. One month after the drug discontinuation the stent thrombosis occurred, resulting in acute myocardial infarction. The patient was successfully treated with balloon coronary angioplasty and was advised to use clopidogrel indefinitely.
