OBJECTIVES We sought to prospectively evaluate evidence of myocardial ischemia after surgical repair of anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery with an interarterial course (AAOCA). BACKGROUND An AAOCA is a rare anomaly associated with increased myocardial ischemia and sudden death risk in children. Data evaluating ischemia after AAOCA repair are limited. METHODS We included children who underwent AAOCA surgery between October 2001 and December 2006. They were prospectively assessed… CONTINUE READING
