In this case report, an iatrogenic dissection of the descending aorta occurred during balloon angioplasty and stenting of a recurrent coarctation. The dissection was not seen by transesophageal echocardiography, but intravascular ultrasonography, performed routinely during such procedures at this institution, identified the dissection and guided further therapeutic stent placement.
