This case of surgical correction of coarctation of the aorta in close proximity to the left carotid artery with complete interruption of the aorta was presented to illustrate the usefulness of monitoring the left temporal arterial pressure when perfusion to the brain might be compromised by occlusion of the left common carotid artery. Temporal arterial pressure monitoring gives an accurate, reliable index of both the pressure and oxygen tension of the blood perfusing the brain.
