1Kalp Damar Cerrahisi AD, GATA, Ankara Subclavian-aortic bypass technique is one of the surgical choices in adult patient with aortic coarctation. A patient was presented with diagnosis of aortic coarctation located on isthmic aortic region. He was operated using a 12 mm dacron graft from left subclavian artery to descending aorta. Dizziness and hypotensive attacks were observed after mobilization of the patient on the second postoperative day. Left upper extremity pulses were not palpable as well. Subclavian steal syndrome was diagnosed and reoperation was performed. Previous bypass graft was removed and a tube graft was interposed to the coarcted segment. In this case report, the patient that has subclavian steal syndrome after repairing aortic coarctation surgery with a graft from left subclavian artery to descending aorta will be discussed and will be focused on that complication.
