Abstract

Following stenting for coarctation of the aorta, it can be difficult to image the stent adequately using cross-sectional echocardiography. Unless there is marked clinical concern regarding stent patency, repeat cardiac catheterization is not warranted. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is a useful alternative imaging modality. We report a case that highlights the clinical utility of MDCT for imaging patients who have had stenting of aortic coarctation. MDCT clearly revealed stent fracture as the cause of late stent failure and recoarctation
