Abstract

We report the use of a new biliary stent (IntraStent Double Strut LD) adapted for use in a 16-year-old young man with moderate-severe transverse arch hypoplasia/coarctation of the aorta following two surgical attempts at correction/relief of the coarctation. The stent implantation procedure resulted in complete relief of the coarctation.
