In this article, we presented a 19-year-old patient with juxtaductal aortic coarctation. The coarcted segment was observed with angiographic study. We planned to implant a self-expandable stent graft. At the angiography laboratory, endovascular aortic stent graft was implanted through the right femoral artery with direct small femoral incision. Then, we dilated the narrowed stent segment by balloon catheter. After the procedure, the patient had a significantly dilated aorta distal to the previously coarcted segment. A stent graft was used to treat coarctation. No access site complications were observed.
