In the reported case, coarctation of the aortic arch (Coa) was the cause of hypertonia. Coa diminishes the expected lifetime, and operative treatment is required. PTA is contradictory in the treatment of coarctation. In the reported case coarctation was located on the aortic arch, and because of the risk of the operation PTA was performed. The dilatation was successful, hypertension resolved, and there was no significant difference in the blood pressure on the extremities. 16 months after the dilatation the patient is symptomless. The result of this case indicates that PTA of the Coa of the aorta is feasible. More experience is needed to establish its role.
