Coarctation of the aorta is an unusual finding in an adult person during their sixth decade of life. We present a 52-year-old male who presented with left ventricular failure with low ejection fraction and atrial fibrillation who was incidentally detected to have critical coarctation of the aorta, which was successfully managed with balloon angioplasty. The patient had a favorable result at 6 months of clinical follow-up.

Abstract

Coarctation of the aorta is an unusual finding in an adult person during their sixth decade of life. We present a 52-year-old male who presented with left ventricular failure with low ejection fraction and atrial fibrillation who was incidentally detected to have critical coarctation of the aorta, which was successfully managed with balloon angioplasty. The patient had a favorable result at 6 months of clinical follow-up.
