In the stent era, in addition to restenosis, there are many important consequences deserving more attention. Firstly described in peripheral vascular interventions, it took several years for stent fracture to be known as an appreciable complication of coronary intervention. Especially with the introduction of drug eluting stents and the use of coronary stents in more complex cases, its prevalence has raised and new data have been published concerning its mechanism, predictors, diagnosis, clinical course and treatments. This review will discuss the available literature about stent fracture.
