Abstract

The treatment of hemorrhagic complications of percutaneous interventions with protamine is an accepted practice. Concerns exist about the increased thrombo-genicity of drugeluting stents. We report two cases of acute stent thrombosis following drug-eluting stent implantation related to Protamine administration.
