Abstract

Intense investigation continues on the pathobiology of stent thrombosis (ST) because of its morbidity and mortality. Because little advance has been made in outcomes following ST, ongoing research is focused on further understanding predictive factors as well as ST frequency and timing in various patient subsets, depending upon whether a drug-eluting stent or bare-metal stent has been implanted. Although the preventive role of antiplatelet therapies remains unchallenged, new data on genomics and variability in response to antiplatelet therapy, as well as the effects of novel therapeutic agents and duration of therapy, have become available. The goal remains identification of patients at particularly increased risk of ST so that optimal prevention strategies can be developed and employed.
