1. The Risk of Stent Thrombosis in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes Treated With Bare-Metal and Drug-Eluting Stents

    Objectives: We aimed to evaluate the risk of definite stent thrombosis with bare-metal stents (BMS) and drug-eluting stents (DES) in patients treated for acute coronary syndromes. Background: Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) have been reported as increasing the risk for stent thrombosis. Methods: Between January 2000 and December 2005, 5,816 consecutive patients underwent percutaneous coronary intervention for de novo lesions with a single stent type. These patients consisted of 3 sequential groups of BMS (n = 2,248), sirolimus-eluting stents (n = 822) and paclitaxel-eluting stents (n = 2,746). In total, 3,485 patients presented with an ACS. Results: After a median ...
