Introduction 2. Patient 1 3. Patient 2 4. Patient 3 5. Discussion 6. Conclusion conflicts of interest references abstract background older patients with combination of aortic coarctation and large patent ductus arteriosus can be managed with transcatheter interventions. The strategies depend on anatomy of coarctation and size of ductus arteriosus. Methods we present three different patients with this combination. The anatomic factors like isthmic hypoplasia, dilatation of post coarctation descending aorta and size of ductus arteriosus were noted. Results patients with isthmic hypoplasia needed stent angioplasty of the coarctation. If there is no dilatation of post coarctation aorta, a single covered stent excluded the ductus arteriosus and relieved the coarctation gradients. Dilated post coarctation aorta precluded a covered stent and warranted closure of duct with occluder device and stent angioplasty of coarctation. When there is a good sized aortic isthmus in a discrete membranous coarctation, device closure of the duct and balloon aortoplasty was successful. Conclusions in coarctation with patent ductus arteriosus associated with good sized aortic isthmus, closure of duct with duct occluder device and balloon aortoplasty would correct the lesions. If there is isthmic hypoplasia.

Building the National Pass

The National Pass hiking track was built with picks, shovels, crowbars and dynamite between 1906 and 1907. It involved cutting a zig-zag staircase into a cliff face and became a very popular walking trail.   Learn more

Restoring the Trail

After 95 years service, the track had to be closed in 2002. Bushfires, rain storms and landslides played havoc with fencing and wooden bridges. The $1.5 million restoration project won a National Trust award.   Learn more

Bushwalking Tips

Walking this historic trail will be more enjoyable if you prepare well. Bring a camera and binoculars if you can. Make sure you have adequate clothing should the weather change. Carry water and snacks. Don't stray off the trail.
