Coil occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus was performed in an 8.5-month-old infant who had frequent lower respiratory tract infections and growth retardation due to big left-to-right shunt through a wide arterial duct. Post-occlusion echocardiographic examination revealed iatrogenic coarctation of the aorta with typical Doppler echocardiographic findings because of the protrusion of the loops of the coil into the descending aorta. The problem was resolved spontaneously during follow-up.
