Aortic dissection after angioplasty and stenting of an aortic coarctation: detection by intravascular ultrasonography but not transesophageal echocardiography.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The dissection was not seen by transesophageal echocardiography, but intravascular ultrasonography, performed routinely during such procedures at this institution, identified the dissection and guided further therapeutic stent placement.
