Figure 3: (a) Indicates the aortogram of the patient in anteroposterior view, (b) The two main pitfalls are highlighted:difficulty of measurement of a curved and angulated coarcted aorta and the significant discrepancy between the diameters of the two adjacent segments of the aorta(with a long narrow segment connected to a dilated post-coarctation part and an almost 90 bent in between. This configuration, as described by Roos et al, increases the displacement force on the stent
