BACKGROUND During primary coarctation repair, collateral blood vessels contribute significantly to distal perfusion. We sought to determine if velocity-encoded cine magnetic resonance imaging (VENC-MRI) could provide insight into anatomy and hemodynamics of collateral flow in patients with unrepaired coarctation. METHODS Sixteen patients (median age, 6.2 years; range, 1 to 18) with discrete coarctation (65% severe, 29% mild-moderate) and 10 controls (median age, 12.0 years; range, 9 to 15… CONTINUE READING
