The short- and long-term results of effective surgical repair of coarctation of the aorta on left ventricular mass and function in 48 patients were evaluated using echocardiography and stress-gated radionuclide angiography. Thirty-two of the 48 patients who had no additional cardiac problems and had technically adequate radionuclide angiograms form the basis for this report. Among these, three had mild systolic hypertension and none had significant aortic valve dysfunction. Age at the time of… CONTINUE READING
