Insights into stent thrombosis from a US National registry

Armstrong et al provide insights into stent thrombosis (early, late and very late stent thrombosis) from a US multicentre registry.  7315 events in 7079 patients of 401662 patients (1.8%) were identified and characterised. Differences in-hospital mortality were noted (as tabulated below). Clinical characteristics and correlates are discussed.
