Hypertension Response after Stenting adult with Coarctaion of Aorta One Year Follow Up
Keywords:Coarctation of aorta, adult congenital heart disease, hypertension, interventional cardiology
Coarctaion of aorta occur in 6 % of patient with congenital heart disease, balloon dilation ,stenting and
surgery have been proved as modality of treatment coarctaion of aorta.Usually untreated coarctation of aorta
may lead to renal, vascular and cardiac complication that start to appear at binging of fourth decade of life.To
knew hypertension response after stenting adult with coarctation of aorta. 75 patients with coarctaion of aorta
30 male (40%) and 45 female (60 %) was involve in this prospective longitudinal study, there age range from
16 to 41 year, for all echocardiography, CT chest done to confirm diagnosis then all undergo catheterization
of aorta with 2 sheath one femoral and other radial to measure pressure gradient across stenosis and stent
localization follow by stenting with pre and post dilation if needed then measure pressure gradient across
stent. All patients stent by uncover stent including for 2 case with interrupted coarctaion, immediately after
stent pressure gradient fall almost all our patient then follow up 6 month, 1 year by angiography assessment
with CT chest show no stent fracture or aneurysm in aorta at stent site. The study conclude uncovered stent
appear to be safe in treating coarctaion of aorta with less morbidity and mortality. stent adult with coarctaion
of aorta have advantage of lowering blood pressure in those suffer from hypertension.
