Coarctation of aorta in adults are generally treated by uncovered stents, and Stent dilatation of the aorta often requires the very narrow unprotected coarcted area to be dilated to a large diameter. These lesions may be tortuous and cystic medial necrosis or calcification may be present, especially in the older pt. All these factors expose the patient to the risk of early or late aneurysm formation or rupture. We report our experience and acute results with a new covered low-profile stent in the treatment of coarctation of aorta.
