CARVALHO, Aquiles Tadashi Ywata de et al. Endovascular treatment of aortic coarctation: a case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.1, pp.57-61. ISSN 1677-5449.

Aortic coarctation is a congenital cardiovascular malformation of high prevalence. Implies a narrowing of the thoracic aorta usually just below the left subclavian artery. It is more common in males in a ratio of 2 to 3:1. The clinical presentation consists of hypertension in the arms and reduction of pulses in the legs. Traditionally, surgical treatment is indicated, but the endovascular techniques have been proposed with good results. We report a case of a 24 years male patient with claudication of the lower limbs and hypertension secondary to aortic coarctation successfully treated with angioplasty and aortic endograft.

Keywords : aortic coarctation; endovascular procedures; angioplasty.
