The coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is one of the most frequently encountered congenital heart diseases and in most of cases it is characterized with a discrete narrowing localized on the thoracic aorta just distal to the left subclavian artery. The incidence of totally occluded CoA is very rare. The treatment options for CoA include surgical approaches, transcatheter balloon angioplasty, or stent placement. Although stenting has been the preferred method for the treatment of CoA, few studies exist in the literature regarding the use of stenting approach in the treatment of total occluded CoA. Therefore, we aimed to present a CoA patient treated using material and techniques used in the standard treatment of chronic total occlusion of coronary arteries.
