Coarctation of the abdominal aorta is a rare pathology. Stenosis of visceral and renal arteries may present together with coarctation, which requires specific operation techniques. We present the case of a patient with coarctation of the abdominal aorta associated with stenosis of the celiac trunk, the superior mesenteric and the right renal arteries. Distal aortic perfusion by extracorporeal circulation and selective right renal perfusion techniques were used during the operation to protect the spinal cord and kidney against hypoperfusion and ischemia.
