Abstract

Injury of the aortic wall occurs in about 15% of patients after balloon aortic valvuloplasty. Formation of an intimal flap is a rare type of vessel wall injury, which is not well recognized yet. We report a case of a newborn with critical aortic stenosis who had an aortic wall injury after balloon aortic valvuloplasty.
