Abstract
The work-up of a previously asymptomatic 72-year-old man presenting with sudden cardiac death revealed a coarctation of the aorta as the cause of arterial hypertension, severe left ventricular hypertrophy, in combination with coronary artery disease with an apical myocardial infarction, severe autonomic dysfunction, and AV-nodal reentrant tachycardia, All these elements and their complex, probably synergistic interactions might have been involved in the development of sudden cardiac death.
