Four cases of coarctation of the aorta complicated by aneurysm are added to the 109 cases in the literature. Two of the 4 patients died following operation. Two are alive and well, one with an end-to-end anastomosis and one, a 3-inch long homograft. Recent views of the etiology of coarctation and of aneurysm are discussed.
