BACKGROUND: Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) with aortic arch hypoplasia (AAH) is a relatively common congenital heart disease in clinical practice. Nonetheless, the corrective surgical technique for infants and children is a clinical problem that remains controversial. In this study, we sought to evaluate the surgical effects of aortic arch (AA) reconstruction with coarctation resection and aortoplasty with autologous pulmonary artery patch for infants and young children with CoA and AAH...

The best surgical approach for coarctation of the aorta (COA) combined with other cardiac diseases is uncertain. The simultaneous intracardiac repair of complex pathologies is desirable because multistage procedures may lead to a higher rate of mortality. We describe a case involving a 61-year-old woman who was suffering from COA with a concomitant arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease. We managed her case via single-stage surgery that included a median sternotomy.

BACKGROUND: We sought to compare clinical outcomes and resource utilization for two surgical approaches for single-stage repair of coarctation of the aorta and ventricular septal defect (VSD). METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of 21 consecutive neonates and infants undergoing single-stage repair of coarctation of the aorta and VSD. Group 1 included 13 patients with both arch repair and VSD repair completed via sternotomy. Group 2 included eight patients with off-pump arch repair via left thoracotomy followed by repositioning and VSD repair via sternotomy...

Intercostal artery aneurysms (ICAA) are very rare vascular complication of coarctation. The most cases are asymptomatic and could be found incidentally during thoracotomy for others vascular pathology or may present with fatal problems such as rupture that is leading to bleeding and hypovolemic shock. Intercostal artery aneurysm most commonly accompanies with neurofibromatosis, aortic coarctation, or in chest trauma. We report a 10-year-old girl who complained of lower extremities pain and hypertension for a few months...

Exercise hypertension is a common occurrence among individuals with aortic coarctation. Although exercise is known to be beneficial among the general population, the risks and benefits of exercise among those with aortic coarctation are less clear. This systematic review evaluates the benefits and risks of exercise for persons with aortic coarctation. Electronic databases were systematically searched (that is, MEDLINE and EMBASE) and key reviews cross-referenced to identify articles for inclusion. Original research articles reporting exercise among individuals with aortic coarctation were included...

Iliac arterial disease, unfavorable anatomy, and prior stenting all pose challenges to access in endovascular abdominal aortic repair (EVAR) and thoracic aortic repair (TEVAR). Iliac access injury during T/EVAR may lead to rupture, dissection, thrombosis, or distal ischemia. Some have advocated iliac stent prior to T/EVAR in patients with suboptimal iliac access. The rate of complication and iliac stent migration during subsequent T/EVAR is undocumented. This case report describes a unique instance of self expanding iliac stent migration during TEVAR which pinched the thoracic aortic endograft causing functional aortic coarctation...

BACKGROUND: Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) without an atrial septal defect (ASD) associated with coarctation of the aortic arch is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly. This rare combination is only described in a few studies; none report the correction of these two malformations in a single surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 5-year-old girl was admitted to our hospital because the echocardiography revealed coarctation of the aortic arch; this diagnosis was confirmed by computed tomography (CT), which also showed her left superior pulmonary vein draining into the vertical vein without ASD (Fig...

Pseudocoarctation is an unusual anomaly mirroring true coarctation. Congenital kinking or pseudocoarctation of aorta was never a benign condition. Although surgical repair should be suggested for all symptomatic individuals. Regular follow-up is obligatory for all asymptomatic patients deprived of linked anomalies. We suggest CT-aortogram as a non-invasive imaging modality for the definitive diagnosis of pseudocoarctation.

BACKGROUND: Arterial hypertension is common in adults with repaired coarctation of the aorta, and is associated with several severe complications. Aims This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of poorly controlled (⩾140/90 mmHg) blood pressure among patients with diagnosed hypertension and to identify associated factors. METHODS: In the national register for CHD, adults with repaired coarctation of the aorta and diagnosed hypertension - defined as a registry diagnosis and/or use of anti-hypertensive prescription medication - were identified...

Congenital abnormalities of the aortic arch include interrupted aortic arch (IAA), coarctation of the aorta (CoA), and double aortic arch (DAA). Aortic arch repair is difficult and postoperative complications are common. However, postoperative tracheobronchial stenosis with respiratory insufficiency is an uncommon complication and is usually caused by increased aortic anastomotic tension. We report here a case of tracheal compression by a mediastinal hematoma following IAA surgery. The patient underwent a repeat operation to remove the hematoma and was successfully weaned off the ventilator...

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the right pulmonary artery in single ventricles is a very rare congenital anomaly. Failure to recognise it preoperatively may lead to adverse outcomes, including death. We report the case of a neonate with a univentricular heart in the form of a double-outlet right ventricle, mitral atresia with discrete coarctation of the aorta, and an incidental intraoperative finding of an anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the right pulmonary artery. The patient underwent a successful repair with an uneventful postoperative course...

Coarctation of the aorta is an uncommon cause of treatment-resistant hypertension in adults. It is typically detected and treated in infancy or childhood with surgical or endovascular procedures. Most cases of recurrence of coarctation after repair occur in childhood or early adulthood; recurrence in older persons (>70 years) has rarely been reported. A 73-year-old woman was referred to us for the management of treatment-resistant hypertension accompanied by symptoms of claudication and headaches, which had resulted in multiple emergency room visits...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To provide an overview of current recommendations and techniques used to image coarctations of the aorta. RECENT FINDINGS: Imaging of coarctation of the aorta in adults is moving away from conventional techniques such as echocardiography and invasive angiography. Echocardiography may assist in making the diagnosis but is limited in its ability to quantify the severity of coarctations. Current guidelines recommend that every patient with a coarctation must undergo a computed tomography (CT) or MRI scan for accurate delineation of morphology...

Recurrent aortic arch obstruction (RAAO) remains a major cause of morbidity following surgical neonatal repair of coarctation of the aorta (CoA). Elucidating predictors of RAAO can identify high-risk patients and guide postoperative management. The Coarctation index (CoA-I), defined as the ratio of the diameter of the narrowest aortic arch segment to the diameter of the descending aorta, has been used to help diagnose RAAO in neonates following the Norwood Procedure. We sought to assess the predictive value of the CoA-I on RAAO after CoA repair in infants with biventricular circulation...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension following primary coarctation repair affects up to a third of subjects. A number of studies suggest that future hypertension risk is reduced if primary repair is performed at a younger age. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to evaluate the risk of future medical treatment for hypertension depending on age of primary coarctation repair. METHODS: This study was carried out at a tertiary paediatric cardiology referral centre...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate survival and freedom from reintervention after aortic coarctation repair in Maltese patients and to compare cardiovascular mortality in coarctation repair survivors with that in the general population. DESIGN: All 72 aortic coarctation patients with any type of repair, born by end-1997 and logged in the local database were included. Trends in timing and type of repair were determined by comparing patients born before and after 1985. Kaplan-Meier analyses of survival and reintervention-free survival were performed on the 59 repair survivors with complete follow-up data (mean follow-up 26...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the early and late outcomes of patients undergoing aortic arch reoperations. METHODS: The follow-up of 70 patients undergoing a second arch operation (excluding univentricular physiology) between 1979 and 2015 was reviewed. Median age at initial arch operation and second operation was 9 days (interquartile range: 5-35) and 10 months (interquartile range: 3-64), respectively. The most common indication for initial arch operation was coarctation in 79% (55/70)...
