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