Aortic coarctation is a congenital cardiac disease which is typically diagnosed and treated in childhood. If left untreated, aortic coarctation may lead to complications such as myocardial infarction, aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection and intracranial hemorrhage. In this study, we aimed to present the combined surgical and endovascular method that we performed in a 32-year-old male patient who had hypoplastic aortic arch, aortic coarctation and aortic aneurysm starting from the proximal left subclavian artery.
