Abstract

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19) has a major threat to human health, especially on patients with underlying hearth diseases. Stent thrombosis (ST) is a rare event often associated with large myocardial infarction (MI) or death. Here, we report a case of a patient with COVID-19 infection who developed ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with multiple stent thrombosis under triple antithrombotic therapy in the early period after coronary stenting.
