|Abstract:||Balloon angioplasty is universally accepted presently as the primary therapeutic strategy for recoarctation following surgery during infancy and early childhood. This report concerns a 26-year-old lady with cephalobrachial hypertension on beta-blocker who presented with Left sided chest pain since 3 months, having undergone surgery for coarctation in early childhood and balloon angioplasty at 17 years of age. Chest X-ray showed prominent aortic knuckle. CT scan chest showed features of residual coarctation with 'double-barrelled' upper thoracic aorta of 5 cm diameter. Surgery consisted of interposition graft repair of distal arch and upper thoracic aorta under total circulatory arrest through posterolateral thoracotomy leading to excellent recovery.
