Abstract

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. (J Am Soc Echocardiogr 2001;14:73-6.).
