Stent thrombosis is a very serious problem after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation even though its incidence is about or less than 1%. As the clopidogrel resistance is expected to play an important role in the occurrence of stent thrombosis, new anti-platelet agents overcoming this issue can give us another choice. We experienced a case of a 58-year-old male with successful prasugrel rescue therapy in a patient with clopidogrel resistance who had recurrent stent thrombosis following DES implantation.
