BACKGROUND: In young patients with native aortic coarctation (CoA), the management of choice is surgery. However, in re-coarctation (re-CoA) surgery is associated with increased morbidity and even mortality. Some children with native CoA present relative contraindications for surgery. METHODS: From 2006 to 2017, thirty-four patients (male n = 20; 59%) from two centres with re-CoA (31) and native CoA (3) were managed by stent implantation with premounted balloon expandable stents...

OBJECTIVES: Aortic arch repair has been shifted from deep hypothermia plus circulatory arrest to cerebral perfusion at tepid temperatures. A step forward is a simultaneous brain-coronary perfusion, allowing beating-heart arch surgery. METHODS: A 'Y' cannula from the arterial line delivers oxygenated blood to brain and heart. The arch is repaired on a beating heart at 25°C. Intracardiac repair is performed after running cardioplegia through the root line. Fifty patients are classified into 3 groups: A, Norwood (8 neonates); B, aortic arch (14 children) and C, aortic arch plus intracardiac repair (28 patients)...

BACKGROUND: Optimal management strategy for native aortic coarctation in neonates and young infants is still a matter of debate. The surgical procedure, histopathologic research, and clinical outcome in 15 neonates who underwent surgery after successful balloon angioplasty is the basis of this study. METHOD: Between 01 October, 2014 and 01 August, 2017, we enrolled 15 patients with native aortic coarctation for this study. These patients had complications regarding recoarctation, following balloon angioplasty intervention at our institute and other centres...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of our prospective randomized study was to compare modified reverse aortoplasty (MRA) and extended end-to-end anastomosis (EEA). METHODS: We have assessed the operative correction results in 54 infants with coarctation of the aorta and distal aortic arch hypoplasia who underwent primary repair in our institute between July 2013 and February 2014. All of the patients were <12 months old when they had the operation. Patients were randomly assigned to 2 arms: modified reverse subclavian flap angioplasty (MRA group; n = 27) or extended end-to-end anastomosis (EEA group; n = 27)...

Taussig-Bing anomaly and aortic arch obstruction are two types of complex congenital cardiac malformations. Almost 50% of patients with Taussig-Bing anomaly have aortic arch obstruction. This report assesses the surgical outcomes of single-stage correction in neonates with both defects. Between November 2006 and November 2015, 39 neonates with Taussig-Bing anomaly and aortic arch obstruction (28 patients with coarctation of the aorta and 11 patients with interrupted aortic arch) underwent a one-stage arterial switch operation and aortic reconstruction...

PURPOSE: Endovascular treatment of coarctation of aorta (CoA) by self-expandable Nitinol stents is one of the recognized treatment methods and may be an alternative to surgery or balloon-expandable stent implantation for CoA but there is little information about midterm to long term results of self-expandable stents. METHODS: Sixty-two patients with CoA (40 men), with a mean age of 30.7 ± 11 years, (range 17-63 years) underwent stent implantation with Optimed self-expandable Nitinol stents between 2005 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Results of stent implantation (SI) of postsurgical recoarctation of the aorta (ReCoA) are not frequently published. AIM: This study sought to retrospectively evaluate results of SI in ReCoA in older children and adults. METHODS: Twenty-eight SIs were performed on 26 ReCoA patients with a median age of 23 (10-65) years. Dependent upon availability, the following stents were applied: Palmaz, Cheatham Platinum (CP), Andrastents XL/XXL (AS), Covered CP (CVCP) stents, and self-expanding stents (Smart)...

INTRODUCTION: Balloon angioplasty (BAP) and aortic or pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty (BAV, BPV) are well-established treatment options in congenital heart defects. Recently, significant technological progress has been made and new catheters have been implemented in clinical practice. AIM: To analyze the results of BAP, BAV and BPV with the new balloon catheter Valver and its second generation Valver II, which the company Balton (Poland) launched and developed. These catheters have not been clinically evaluated yet...

OBJECTIVES: Reoperations and catheter interventions after the arterial switch operation (ASO) are relatively rare, but their frequency varies among different centres. They significantly impact the postoperative course of children with transposition of the great arteries (TGA). The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of reoperations and catheter interventions in patients with TGA after the ASO and to identify the potential risk factors. METHODS: For this retrospective case review study we included all consecutive 715 patients with TGA who underwent the ASO in the Department of Cardiac Surgery between the years 1991 and 2015...

OBJECTIVES: Aortic arch reconstruction in children with single ventricle lesions may predispose to circulatory inefficiency and maladaptive physiology leading to increased myocardial workload. We sought to describe neoaortic anatomy and physiology, risk factors for abnormalities, and impact on right ventricular function in patients with single right ventricle lesions after arch reconstruction. METHODS: Prestage II aortic angiograms from the Pediatric Heart Network Single Ventricle Reconstruction trial were analyzed to define arch geometry (Romanesque [normal], crenel [elongated], or gothic [angular]), indexed neoaortic dimensions, and distensibility...

Because surgical repair for coarctation of the aorta has been performed since 1945, growing numbers of patients with repaired coarctation are reaching adulthood. Primary transcatheter intervention for coarctation emerged as an alternative to surgery after 1983, and it provides comparable relief of the aortic gradient with few complications at a cost of an increased need for reintervention and a higher risk of aneurysm after repair. Although short-term outcomes are good after coarctation repair, alterations of vascular form and function persist...

Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) accounts for 5% to 8% of all congenital heart defects. With all forms of interventions for native CoA, repeat intervention may be required due to restenosis and/or aneurysm formation. Restenosis rates vary from 5% to 24% and are higher in infants and children and in those with arch hypoplasia. Although repeat surgery can be done for recurrent CoA, guidelines from a number of professional societies have recommended balloon angioplasty with or without stenting as the preferred intervention for patients with isolated recoarctation...

Survival of patients with aortic coarctation improved dramatically after surgical repair became available and the number of patients who undergo surgery and reach adulthood is steadily increasing. However, life expectancy is still not as normal as in unaffected peers. Cardiovascular complications are frequent and require indefinite follow-up. Concern falls chiefly into five categories: recoarctation, endocarditis, stenotic and/or incompetent coexisting bicuspid aortic valve, aortic aneurysm formation and systemic hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital malformation that has long been considered completely correctable with appropriate surgery in childhood. However, with the aging of these patients, many late complications have been reported, and this notion must be reevaluated. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent reoperation between 1992 and 2012 in our adult cardiac surgery department following surgical correction of coarctation in childhood; 18 patients over 15-years old were included in the study...
