Abstract/OtherAbstract:
False aneurysm associated with untreated coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is an uncommon vascular complication. We present a 41-year-old woman with mosaic Turner syndrome who had CoA complicated with a small false aneurysm on descending aorta just distal to the coarctation. The patient had not been diagnosed with Turner syndrome despite several physical characteristics of the syndrome because she had histories of natural childbirth. The false aneurysm was resected with the coarctation through a thoracotomy and proximal aorta was directly anastomosed to distal aorta. Endovascular therapy has become preferred method in recent years in treatment for coarctation of the aorta. However, careful consideration should be given to the irregularities on the aorta with the coarctation for diagnosis of false aneurysm.
