    OCT Findings from the European Multi-centre Prestige Stent Thrombosis Study

    Background Coronary stent thrombosis (ST) remains the ‘Achilles Heel’ of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Although relatively rare, it is associated with a high rate of acute myocardial infarction and death.A specific point of concern is the ongoing risk of very late ST, occurring more than one year after stent implantation, and the fact that this seems to occur steadily at an annual rate of 0.5% with a high risk of recurrence.
