Aortic coarctation is a correctable hypertensive disease. For safety reasons and due to the invasiveness of surgical techniques, percutaneous interventions have become drastically more popular in recent times. In elderly patients with aortic coarctation who are at risk of an aortic wall aneurysm and rupture, covered stents are preferred but in younger patients, bare metal stenting may be sufficient for long-term safety. Herein we present a 47-year-old typical aortic coarctation patient who was successfully treated with a bare metal stent.
