Caption: Figure 1: CTA at diagnosis showed severe segmental aortic stenosis arising before the origin of the upper mesenteric artery extending for a length of 3-4 cm with lumen diameter of 0.2-0.3 cm at the narrowest part and a poststenotic diameter of 0.6-0.7 cm.
The authors attribute this finding to poststenotic flow acceleration centered at the level of the renal arteries, which is further supported by follow-up duplex study that demonstrates decreased flow velocity through the renal arteries after placement of the aortic stent.
Infundibular pulmonic stenosis, poststenotic dilation of the pulmonic trunk, and proximal main pulmonary arteries were identified, as well as a mild narrowing of the descending aorta compatible with aortic stenosis.
Predisposing conditions include congenital and acquired heart disease, such as left-to-right shunting or pulmonary valve stenosis with poststenotic dilatation.
