Abstract

Intravascular stent treatment for coarctation of the aorta has been shown to be successful in 96–98% of patients. In theory, stent dilation of coarctation is a straightforward procedure, but in reality this is one of the most technically demanding procedures performed in the catheterization laboratory. This chapter focuses on complications encountered with this procedure, techniques used to avoid the complication, and methods used to overcome the complication should it occur.Adult issues will be briefly covered, although these will be more thoroughly covered in Chapter 33.
