CRAVIOTO, Sergio Trevethan et al. Extreme aortic coarctaction, severe aortic regurgitaron and heart failure relieved immediately after stent aortoplasty, and complete Resolution through Bebtal/de bono surgical repair. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2006, vol.76, n.3, pp.283-289. ISSN 1665-1731.

When aneurysm of the root of aorta, bicuspid aorta valve and coarctation coexist, surgical repair involves technical problems. We present the case of a patient in whom initial correction of the coarctation was made by means of interventional treatment, with an impressive and practically immediate resolution of heart failure. In a second intervartional, the aortic root pathology was corrected through the Bentall and de Bono's surgical technique. We present the short- and mid-term results. In addition this case demostrates the little well-know fact, that the patients with bicuspid aorta also have cystic media degeneration of the wall of the aorta.
