From November 1, 2010 to November 1, 2014, a total of 110 consecutive AF patients undergoing coronary stenting with CAD were retrospectively evaluated in the Cardiology Department, The First Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University; and from October 1, 2014 to November 1, 2014, a total of 166 consecutive patients undergoing coronary stenting without AF were also collected and evaluated as the control.
The follow-up clinical reevaluation of patients was performed by telephone contact from December 1, 2015, to December 31, 2015, and the data including the use of antithrombotic therapy and adverse events were recorded and followed up for 12 months after coronary stenting. The primary end-point was composite of all-cause death, nonfatal recurrent myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, serious bleeding events, unplanned repeat revascularization, and worsening heart failure.

The researchers assessed stent thrombosis in 1,000 patients (788 men, 212 women) who underwent percutaneous coronary stenting between 1997 and 2001.
In 40 of the patients, the chemotherapy--primarily for lymphoma; leukemia; or breast, lung, ovarian, colon, or bladder cancer--was administered within 3-4 weeks of coronary stenting.
