We inserted covered Cheatham-Platinum stents in 4 patients, ranging in age from 12 to 19 years, who weighed between 45 and 94 kg. All the patients had aortic coarctation, with surgical repair having been attempted previously in one, and with balloon dilation having been performed as the primary treatment in two, resulting in formation of aneurysms. The fourth patient had not received any treatment. The gradients were reduced from 10 to 40 mmHg before insertion of the stent to 0 to 5 mmHg after stenting. No complications were encountered. All the patients are well at an interval of 3 to 14 months after stenting.
