Late thrombosis (angiographic total occlusion associated with an acute coronary syndrome) is a potentially life-threatening complication after intracoronary radiation therapy. This review is intended to explore the preclinical and clinical evidence for late thrombosis, to discuss the etiology, and to provide guidelines for future management. Although we have gained a greater understanding of this complex entity, further research is required in a quest to curtail late thrombosis rates.
