Drug-eluting stents (DES) have gained great popularity because of extraordinarily low rates of restenosis. Despite these superior clinical outcomes, several cases regarding the severe multi-vessel coronary spasm, although rare, after the placement of first generation DES have been reported. We report a case of severe, multi-vessel coronary spasm that occurred two occasions after placement of a zotarolimus-eluting stent, one of the second generation DES, in a 42-year-old man with unstable angina. The first incidence was relieved by intracoronary nitroglycerin alone, and second incident, which had combined fixed stenosis was treated with intracoronary nitroglycerin and everolimus-eluting stent.
