Abstract

Performing emergent spinal surgery within 6 months of percutaneous placement of drug-eluting coronary stent (DES) is complex. The risks of spinal bleeding in a "closed space" must be compared with the risks of stent thrombosis or major cardiac event from dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) interruption.
