We report the case of a man presenting with acute myocardial infarction and a history of percutaneous coronary intervention with implantation of a drug-eluting stent, which was now fractured. This case highlights the growing recognition of stent fracture as a potential mechanism for late stent thrombosis in the drug-eluting stent era. Following the case report, we review the literature on the incidence, contributing factors and clinical impact of stent fracture.
