Anatomical, clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic data culled from 77 cases of aortic patients in the first year of life are examined. Reference is made to the complicated physiopathological problems posed by this deformity. Rarely found in isolation, it is usually no more than a component of complex malformations. The term coarctation syndrome can thus be validly employed. Stress is laid on the fact that medical treatment is only sufficient if intense and quickly efficacious (this is usually the case in simple forms). In all other cases, and almost always in complex forms, emergency surgery is indicated.
