Abstract

Male adolescent fourteen years old with Coarctation diagnosed at the age of eleven. He underwent cardiac catheterization with percutaneous balloon dilation and stent implantation. The immediate result was satisfactory but three years later a transverse fracture of the stent was detected on cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging with findings of moderate restenosis. This complication was treated with percutaneous implantation of a covered stent. The case of this adolescent is interesting because late fracture of aortic stent is a rare complication and covered stent implantation is a sufficient treatment whether or not there is recoarctation.
