Fatal infection after rapamycin eluting coronary stent implantation.

Heart. 2005 Jun;91(6):e51, PMID: 15894752

Septic complications after coronary stenting are extremely rare. The occurrence of cardiac related sepsis after rapamycin eluting stent deployment has not been previously reported. The potential role of drug eluting stents in locally blunting the innate response to bacterial agents is discussed.
