Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: Recent studies have demonstrated that there is a loss of aortic compliance in patients after coarctation repair. The clinical effect of this and other mechanisms apart from restenosis on the rate of arterial hypertension is unknown. METHODS: From 1974 through 2000, 404 patients born before January 1, 1985, underwent surgical intervention for isolated aortic coarctation.
