    Pseudoaneurysm and aortobronchial fistula are very rare complications of aortic coarctation repair by means of patch aortoplasty,and are usually fatal if not treated surgically. A 26-year-old man with recent-onset massive hemoptysis had undergone aortic coarctation repair by means of Dacron...

    Background: Aortic coarctation in older children most frequently represents cases of re-coarctation following previous transcatheter or surgical therapy or missed cases of native coarctation. Methods: We describe three cases of adolescents -- two girls and one boy -- with aortic coarctation,...

    Coarctation of the Aorta (CoA) is a congenital cardiac anomaly consisting of a constricted aortic segment with a prevalence of 5 to 8% of all Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). The classic CoA is located in the thoracic aorta distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery, at about the level of...

    We report an unusual case of pseudoaneurysm and coarctation of the descending thoracic aorta after trauma. The coarctation of aorta resulted in hypertension, severe left ventricular dysfunction, and symptoms of congestive heart failure. Surgical bypass resulted in control of blood pressure and...

    The article presents a study related to re-coarctation (Re-Coa) which is a critical condition in children after Norwood-Operation. It involves Re-Coa in infants with hypoplastic-left-heart-syndrome. The results suggest that Re-Coa of the reconstructed aortic arch after Norwood-Operation was a...
