Focal in-stent restenosis and in-stent thrombosis within the same bare-metal stent 5 years after deployment in a saphenous vein graft.

Abstract:

Complications of percutaneous coronary intervention include in-stent restenosis (ISR) and in-stent thrombosis (IST) which have different underlying pathophysiological processes and different treatment strategies. ISR is primarily due to excessive neointimal growth and occurs in 20-30% of bare-metal stents (BMS). Drug-eluting stents (DES) have decreased the rates of ISR (< 10%), but are potentially associated with increased IST related to delayed arterial healing and stent strut exposure. I...
