Abstract

Stent thrombosis (ST) is a rare but catastrophic complication of a drug-eluting stent. Although dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel significantly reduces the occurrence of ST, it continues to occur and is occasionally associated with clopidogrel resistance. Here, we describe a 71-yr-old man with subacute stent thrombosis and clopidogrel resistance following drug-eluting stent implantation who underwent successful ticagrelor rescue therapy.
