Aortic coarctation (CoA) is not uncommon congenital cardiac disease. Surgical repair of native CoA is nowadays a common and safe procedure at early childhood. However, late complications, including re-CoA and aneurysm formation, are not uncommon. The incidence of these complications is dependent on the type of the initial operation. Both transcatheter and surgical repair play important roles in the treatment of late surgical complications. This article will review the incidence of late complications after CoA repair and will discuss the transcatheter treatment options for such complications in the view of recent advancement in transcatheter therapy.
