Abstract

Recurrent aortic coarctation and/or aneurysm is not an uncommon complication after surgical repair of coarctation of the aorta. When these lesions involve the origin of the left subclavian artery, its management becomes more challenging. We report a 30-year-old female who developed recurrent aortic coarctation complicated with the aneurysm involving the left subclavian artery after the surgical repair. The aortic aneurysm was effectively treated by occlusion of the proximal left subclavian artery by an Amplatzer Vascular Plug Type II and placement of a NuMed Covered Cheatham Platinum stent.
