Abstract

It is clear that patient age at operation is an important predictor of long-term survival and the presence of hypertension.41,42 Cononary artery disease is the most common cause of late deaths.42 These patients have associated cardiovascular anomalies that require long-term follow-up, and some need further surgical intervention.42. No single technique is universally applicable in infants. Coarctation in children can usually be repaired by end-to-end anastomosis. To offer the best procedure for each patient, surgeons should have experience with a variety of techniques.
