Case Study
The article presents a case study of 14-year-old male patient who was presented for assessment of systematic arterial hypertension. A long-segment severe coarctation in the distal half of thoracic aorta has been demonstrated by three-dimensional computed tomography. Aorta-aortic bypass graft surgery was suggested for the patient. The article also discusses mid-aortic syndrome, a rare congenital abnormality with the quality of narrowing of the abdominal.
