Abstract An 11-year-old boy was successfully treated by stent implantation for native aortic coarctation. At the 1-year control a severe re-coarctation was found at Doppler analysis and subsequent angiography revealed a transverse stent fracture. A stent-in-stent implantation was performed. Several hypotheses could explain this complication. Interventional cardiologists may pay more attention in following up these patients!
