Coronary artery stent fracture (SF) occurs in drug-eluting stent (DES) era but recurrent and multiple DES fracture was rare. We report a case of recurrent and multiple-site SF and review the literature regarding the prevalence, possible mechanism, and management of recurrent SF. If recurrent SF occurs, the deployment of an alternative DES, except sirolimus-eluting stent, is the option of successful management.
