Cornary pci complications

Elective Cornary cath had stents placed and immediately following complained of chest pain and Shoulder pain . Was told this was normal. Complained all thru the night , given morphine 3 x with no relief. Following morning taken back found 2 of the 3 stents occluded causing acute MI , anterial wall injury with no flow phenomenon .
Now have chronic heart failure with no quality of life :
What could have caused the stents thrombosis in the distal side branch of lad ? Would it have made a difference if they had realized sooner than 9 hrs that I was having acute MI.
