Background:Coarctation of aorta is a common congenital cardiac malformation; controversy hassurrounded the use of balloon angioplasty for native coarctation of aorta as theprimary treatment for patients with various ages with coarctation. Aim: This studyaimed to assess the long term outcome of balloon angioplasty especially concerninganeurysm formation. Patients and Methods: A case series case follow-up study was carried out on a total of 50 patients31 male and 19 female with native coarctation of aorta aged 1 21 years ofage who were treated with balloon angioplasty for more than 1 year at the time offollow up evaluation in surgical specialty hospital-cardiac center in ErbilIraq. They wererecalled and subjected clinical examination, body weight, height, bloodpressure measurements. Radiographic, CT angiography was done for 34 patients. Full echocardiographic evaluation was done infollow up visits. Results: There was a significant reduction in the peakinstantaneous pressure gradient across the coarctated ± 16.89, P = can be performedsafely and effectively with good immediate outcome. Furthermore, it offerssatisfactory long-termresults with low incidence of persisting restenosis, hypertension and aneurysmformation.
