AIMS This study aimed to explore the arterial-left ventricular (LV)-left atrial (LA) interaction in adolescents and young adults late after intervention for coarctation of the aorta (CoA) and interrupted aortic arch (IAA). METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-one (16 males) patients aged 23.4 ± 6.3, at 20.6 ± 5.2 years after intervention, and 31 controls were studied. Carotid arterial stiffness and intima-media thickness (IMT) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity were determined by radiofrequency… CONTINUE READING
