Abstract

Two patients suffering from recurrent coarctation after native coarctation surgery, were scheduled for cardiac catheterization in a hybrid setting by the age of two & three years. Through right anterior mini-thoracotomy unmounted stents were successfully placed in the coarctant segment. One-year follow-up did not show echocardiographic improvement, yet, they were controlled on medical therapy. Five-years follow-up showed stent breakage in the first case, while the second showed stent stenosis that needed balloon dilatation.
