Abstract

Background/Purpose: Knowledge concerning subacute stent thrombosis (SST) following primary stenting for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is not widely available. We studied the incidence, predictors, and clinical outcomes of SST following STEMI. Methods: We analyzed data from 455 consecutive patients who underwent primary stenting for STEMI. Baseline clinical characteristics, coronary angiographic features, medication and outcome were compared in patients with and without SST. Results: SST occurred in 17 patients, and the incidence was 3.7%. Univariate predictors of SST were being a current smoker (53.0% vs. 82.4%, p = 0.01), Killip class ≥ II (38.4% vs. 58.8%, p = 0.05), no coronary re-flow after stenting (6.2% vs. 17.6%, p = 0.05) and lack of coprescription with a statin (39.5% vs. 5.9%, p
