1Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Ankara University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2019.7 Coarctation of the thoracic aorta is a frequently seen condition and may cause late anastomotic complications after surgical repair, which often necessitates urgent treatment. Endovascular treatment methods in this group seem to be life-saving due to high mortality and morbidity rates of conventional open surgical repair. Postcoarction repair and bovine arch anomaly are also complicating factors and may cause additional morbidity. Keywords : Bovine arcus aorta; coarctation of aorta; endovascular treatment
