My toughest case: ‘The aneurysm ruptured, with blood pouring into the chest’

I'm Professor of Paediatric Cardiology at Evelina Children's Hospital, London. Around seven years ago, I was in Germany teaching at an interventional congenital cardiac course. The course was not just lectures, but involved live demonstrations of cases to attendees as well. For example, we had a 23-year-old girl who suffered from coarctation of the aorta; basically, a narrowing of the main artery arising from the heart. Four or five years previously, the patient had received a stretch of the narrowing with a balloon, which would have improved the blood flow in the aorta, but after the procedure she developed a large aneurysm, a weakening of the wall of the aorta.
