TINOCO, Eugênio Carlos Almeida et al. Endovascular treatment in a patient with aortic coarctation: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.1, pp.82-85. ISSN 1677-5449.

Aortic coarctation is a congenital stenosis in the initial portion of the thoracic aorta. Its incidence ranges between 6-8% of liveborns. Clinical presentations are diversified. The treatment of choice is surgery. We report the case of a 31-year-old female patient with constrictive pain in the cervical region, dyspnea, and intermittent claudication of the lower limbs. She was diagnosed with aortic coarctation associated with severe aortic stenosis, which was treated using a combination of endovascular stent implantation and balloon angioplasty.

Keywords : Aortic coarctation; stent; angioplasty.
