Abstract

Carbon monoxide poisoning has a variety of deleterious cardiac effects including arrhythmias, coronary spasm and myocardial infarction. The pro-thrombotic effect of carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the important postulated mechanisms of cardiac injury. There are multiple case reports of myocardial infarction secondary to carbon monoxide poisoning. However, there is no published case of carbon-monoxide-poisoning-induced stent thrombosis. We present a 50-year-old female with late stent thrombosis of a sirolimus-eluting stent secondary to acute carbon monoxide poisoning.
