Abstract: We report on an uncommon case of recoarctation of the aorta 36 years after resection and end-to-end anastomosis associated with coronary heart disease. Since a two-staged surgical therapy implies an increased risk of life for the patient, we decided to perform a combined surgical procedure. Exposing the heart by a median sternotomy we implanted a 16 mm synthetic graft from the ascending to the descending thoracic aorta and performed a prosthesio-coronary bypass in one session. The patient had an uneventful rec… Show more

“…The 2 surgical approaches for patients with coarctation of the aorta and associated cardiac defects that require repair include a 1-stage simultaneous correction of both lesions through a median sternotomy 4,9,10,14,[17][18][19] and a 2-stage repair through median sternotomy and lateral thoracotomy. 20,21 In 1980, Vijayanagar et al 10 described an adult patient with coarctation of the aorta and severe aortic valve regurgitation.…”
