Coarctation Stenting in a Rare Case with Congenitally Corrected Transposition of the Great Arteries and the Bicuspid Aortic Valve
A rare association of CCTGA
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (cc-TGA) is a rare congenital abnormality that occurs in 1 per 33000 live births. This abnormality comprises nearly 0.05% of all congenital heart defects, with at least 90% of cc-TGA patients having associated cardiac defects; some of these associated defects are, however, very rare. In this case report, we describe a 22-year-old man who referred to our hospital for the evaluation of hypertension and cardiac murmurs. Via echocardiography and catheterization, the patient was finally diagnosed with cc-TGA, bicuspid aortic valve, and coarctation of the aorta. He underwent successful percutaneous transarterial coarctoplasty without any complications at early and 6 months’ follow-up visits.
