Late aneurysm formation is a well-described complication after surgical correction of aortic coarctation. Endovascular repair of such aneurysms avoids the morbidity of conventional reoperative thoracic surgery. We describe a unique case of antegrade endovascular repair of a distal coarctation-associated aneurysm with vascular access acquired through the aortic arch by an upper hemi-sternotomy.
