Abstract

We describe a case using a NuMED-covered Cheatham-Platinum (CP) stent (NuMED, Hopkinton, NY) to treat an aneurysm after previous balloon angioplasty and bare stent implantation for coarctation of the aorta (CoA). Exclusion of the left subclavian artery (LSCA) was anticipated. After wire perforation of the covered CP stent, balloon angioplasty was performed through a stent cell to recannulize the LSCA.
