Abstract

Of 353 children who underwent surgical repair of a congenital heart defect, including closure of a ventricular septal defect (VSD), 12 patients (four with tetralogy of Fallot, five with a VSD, and three with a double- outlet right ventricle) developed subaortic stenosis, which was diagnosed one to six years after the surgical procedure. Five patients required surgical treatment of the subaortic stenosis, and one required percutaneous balloon angioplasty. Postsurgical subaortic stenosis appears to be an uncommon progressive acquired disease.
