Abstract

The availability of the only drug eluting stent currently approved in the USA has been limited, so that operators often resort to the deployment of multiple undersized stents and post-stenting high pressure inflations with larger balloons to achieve optimal lesion coverage and stent expansion. A case of stent fracture following percutaneous coronary intervention in which this strategy was used is reported.
