We review the case of a 46-year-old man who underwent elective percutaneous coronary intervention and stenting of the left anterior descending artery and right coronary artery with two sirolimus- and paclitaxel-eluting stents. Four days after angioplasty, he was readmitted with cardiogenic shock due to acute anterior and inferior myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography revealed subacute thrombosis of both stents, and balloon dilation was performed successfully thereafter. The follow-up investigations revealed that the patient was a carrier of factor V Leiden. We hereby discuss the importance of factor V Leiden as the most common cause of hypercoagulable state and its probable role in acute and subacute coronary stent thrombosis in drug-eluting stents.
