We chose endovascular stenting technique to dilate the juxtaductal CoA of thoracic aorta, avoiding the relatively long time of cross-clamping at thoracic aorta, which is essential for the traditional surgical technique to treat the coarctation
. To our knowledge, this is the first case featuring primary TEVAR to the CoA immediately followed by surgical decompression of spinal epidural hemorrhage in the emergent setting.
Pre and post coarctation
aortic pressures were recorded.
 Foetal mortality rate also increases and can reach upto 20% as uterine perfusion decreases distal to coarctation
Pulmonary outflow tract obstruction and aortic coarctation
occur in about 5 % cases.
Transcatheter stent implantation, preferably covered stent, is shown to be safe and efficient in treatment of this disease and was used successfully even in near-atretic coarctation
When a coarctation
is proximal to the left subclavian artery, systolic blood pressure is higher in the right arm than in the left arm .
An usual combination: aortic arch coarctation
associated with Dandy-Walker variant.
All patients underwent aortic arch (AA) reconstruction via median sternotomy with coarctation
resection and aortoplasty with autologous pulmonary
A diagnosis of severe post ductal coarctation
of aorta was made and Balloon aortoplasty was planned for the patient.
There was no coarctation
and pulmonary flow was normal.
2011), with air pollution linked to coarctation
of the aorta, tetralogy of Fallot, and atrial septal defects (Schembari et al.
Of the 131 collateral findings, 15 in 15 patients (prevalence: 2%) were classified as significant and deserving further diagnostic work-up: mediastinal lymphadenopathy/mass (6/15), lung nodule/mass (3/15), aortic coarctation
(2/15), breast nodule (1/15), complex renal cyst (1/15), hepatic mass (1/15), and solid renal mass (1/15).
