Abstract

Intravascular stents have emerged as an effective alternative to surgery and balloon angioplasty in the treatment of native and recoarctation of aorta. Balloon angioplasty, although effective in the treatment of native coarctation of the aorta, is associated with several complications such as recoarctation, aneurysm formation, aortic dissection, and vascular injury. In this report, we present the use of a covered stent to treat a patient who developed recoarctation of the aorta with an associated aneurysm following balloon angioplasty of her native coarctation.
