Drug-eluting stents represent a significant evolution in the therapy of coronary artery disease. Recently, restenosis and thrombosis related to drug-eluting stent fractures have been described. This work reports a case of fracture of a drug-eluting stent 18 months after implantation, associated with restenosis.

Keywords : Drug-eluting stents; Sirolimus-eluting stents; Restenosis; Stent fracture.
