A 67-year-old man with recent myocardial infarction underwent a total of five sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) implantation for three vessels stage by stage. A follow-up angiography showed no significant restenosis except one in the side branch. Thereafter, he had remained asymptomatic. Sixty-six months later, he had an acute myocardial infarction with cardiogenic shock due to simultaneous 3-vessel very late stent thrombosis (VLST). After successful percutaneous coronary intervention, final angiography revealed serious peri-stent contrast staining along with positive remodeling and grade V stent fracture. This rare case illustrates simultaneous 3-vessel VLST, associating with multiple SES-related problems, under continuation of aspirin and cilostazol.
