BACKGROUND Classic techniques for repairing coarctation of the aorta, especially in neonates, have a significant incidence of recurrent obstruction. By connecting the descending aorta to the proximal aortic arch, the end-to-side aortic anastomosis isolates hypoplastic distal arch and encroaching ductal tissue from the anastomotic site. METHODS Follow-up data were available for 88 patients (54 male) who underwent an end-to-side aortic anastomosis from November 1992 until November 1999. The… CONTINUE READING
