Abstract

Coarctation of the aorta discovered in adulthood is uncommon. The formation of aneurysms from the coarctation segment and in the low-pressure area is even rarer. The surgical management of coarctations can be challenging due to calcifications and concomitant cardiovascular and lung disease. We present a case with coronary artery disease, bilateral bullae, left subclavian artery aneurysm, saccular aortic aneurysms originating proximal to the coarctation and from the coarctation itself, and a remnant of ductus arteriosus. The surgical management and possible histopathologic causes for aneurysm formation are discussed.
