OBJECTIVE The interdigitating technique in aortic arch reconstruction in hypoplastic left heart syndrome and variants (HLHS) reduces the recoarctation rate. Little is known on aortic arch growth characteristics and resulting clinical impact. METHODS A total of 139 patients with HLHS underwent staged palliation between 2007 and 2014; 73 patients underwent(More)
