OBJECTIVES Neonates weighing less than 2.5 kg with aortic coarctation are challenging. We sought to find the prevalence of death or aortic arch reintervention and their determinants after coarctation repair. We also sought to define growth trajectories for postrepair aortic arch dimensions and identify factors associated with accelerated longitudinal growth. METHODS We reviewed neonates weighing less than 2.5 kg undergoing coarctation repair between 1993 and 2004. Competing-risks methods… CONTINUE READING
