Abstract

Coronary artery stent fracture is a recognized complication of drug eluting stents. It has been reported more commonly with the use of Cypher stent. Currently, there are no specific recommendations regarding the management of this entity. Routine screening for stent fractures should be avoided as not all stent fractures lead to clinically significant outcomes.
