    A 44-year-old man with congenital aortic coarctation experienced acute dissection that crossed the coarctation and extended to both iliac arteries. The primary entry of the dissection was proximal to the coarctation segment, just below the origin of the left subclavian artery. Surgical procedures involved resection of the diseased segment including the coarctation, and graft interposition.
