Diagnosing coronary arterial stent thrombosis and arterial closure.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This single-center review of a consecutive series of patients requiring reexamination by angiography within 1 week of a coronary stent placement due to chest pain reveals that patients treated with a poststent anticoagulation regimen of warfarin and aspirin, and those with lower poststent deployment dilation pressures, have an increased risk of subacute stent thrombosis. Repeat cardiac catheterization within the first week after coronary artery stent implantation should be reserved for patients with significant electrocardiographic changes.
