Stenting of the Ascending Aorta Revisited

Nasser J Moiduddin et al. Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. .

Abstract

Despite few institutions stenting the ascending aorta, it has been discouraged because of the proximity of the aortic valve, the coronary artery orifices, and the aortic arch branches. We describe a small case series of patients having acquired stenosis of the ascending that was relieved successfully by stenting. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Keywords: aortic disease; bare metal stents; congenital heart disease.
