Abstract: Recent refinement in stent implantation technique and peri-procedural pharmacological treatment has lowered the incidence of stent thrombosis significantly. Still, all stent thromboses are associated with major adverse events. In previous studies it has been suggested that intravascular ultrasound fibrinolysis is safe and effective. In this report, ultrasound successfully reperfused thrombotically occluded stents. These observations suggest that ultrasound may dissolve occlusive platelet-rich thrombus effectively and safely.
