Abstract

To determine whether early coarctation repair is a significant risk for recoarctation in the modern era, 120 patients, including 87 infants, who underwent isolated coarctation repair at a single institution, were reviewed. At a mean follow-up of 44.4 months, there have were no late reoperations, and 2 patients required balloon aortoplasty. The overall incidence of late reintervention was 1.7%, with only 2.4% (2 of 83) in those <1 year old.
