Extensive late-acquired incomplete stent apposition after sirolimus-eluting stent implantation.

Choi HC, Hur SH, Nam CW, Cho YK, Kim H, Park NH, Kim YN, Kim KB - Korean Circ J (2010)

Bottom Line: Late-acquired incomplete stent apposition (ISA) is frequently observed after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation.Most incidences of late-acquired ISA induced by positive vascular remodeling were of the focal type and occurred in a single vessel.We present an unusual case of a 45-year-old male subject diagnosed with late-acquired ISA that occurred in multiple vessels.

Figure 1: Coronary angiography at pre-intervention. A: right coronary artery. B: left coronary artery.

Mentions: Diagnostic coronary angiography (CAG) was performed. The CAG revealed a total occlusion in distal RCA and significant stenosis in mid RCA and proximal to mid LAD (Fig. 1). The patient underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) at the mid to distal RCA with a 3.0 by 33 mm Cypher (Cordis, Miami Lakes, FL, USA) with 20 atmospheres {minimal lumen diameter (MLD) 2.72 mm}.
