Coarctation of the aorta represents 5–7% of congenital heart defects. Symptoms and prognosis depend on the degree of stenosis, age at surgery, surgical method and the presence of other heart defects. Postoperative complications are hypertension, restenosis and an abnormal blood pressure response during exercise. This study includes 41 patients, 15–40 years old, operated in the period 1975–1996. All were exercised on a treadmill until maximal oxygen consumption was achieved. Blood pressure was… CONTINUE READING
