Abstract

The choice of conduits for surgical revascularization in patients with aortic coarctation can be puzzling, as the internal thoracic arteries can be dilated, atherosclerotic and unsuitable for grafting. Reports in the literature are controversial: in some cases, the internal thoracic artery was not suitable for revascularization, while in others, it could be used with discordant outcomes. Here, we review the literature on the subject.
