Abstract

A seven-week-old infant with multiple areas of coarctation of the abdominal aorta and renal artery pathology underwent staged surgical repair of his malformations in our medical center. The clinical and routine echocardiographic evaluations suggested the diagnosis of atypical coarctation of the aorta. The exact anatomical characteristics of his vascular malformations were established by repeated angiocardiographic studies, which should be performed in any patient in which the diagnosis of atypical coarctation of the aorta is suspected.
