Among 111 infants with coarctation of the aorta, fibroelastosis of the left ventricular endocardium was found in 14 cases comprising 12.6%. Such a combination usually caused an extremely poor state of the patients and served as an indication for surgery. A resection of the coarctation of the aorta in cases of fibroelastosis provides for a significant reduction of the workload on the left ventricular myocardium, for an improvement of the patient's state permitting to survive the critical first… CONTINUE READING
