Early Stent Thrombosis May Be Deadliest Among Ischemic And Hemorrhagic Events That Can Occur After Receiving A Drug-Eluting Stent. There are reports that research suggests “early stent thrombosis may be the deadliest among the ischemic and hemorrhagic events that can occur after getting a drug-eluting stent (DES).” Researchers found that “all-cause mortality at 2 years was most common in patients with stent thrombosis.” The data also indicated that “stent thrombosis occurring early, within 30 days in particular, was strongly associated, having a 38.5% mortality rate.” Adapted from JACC
