The management of giant aneurysms associated with aortic coarctation is challenging. The location, the size of the aneurysm, whether it has ruptured, previous coarctation repair, the presence of stenosis, and the ascending and distal aortic pathology will all influence the treatment approach. With more patients surviving to adulthood after early coarctation repair, a better understanding of the anatomy, pathophysiology, and radiological findings of coarctation-related aneurysms is imperative to providing sound care. We present here our experience with a series of giant aneurysms of the aorta, all with a background of underlying aortic coarctation. We highlight the decision-making process and review current management trends.
