Between February 1988 and September 1993 balloon aortic valvuloplasty was attempted in 33 consecutive patients in the first year of life: 20 patients (61%) were younger than 1 month. Major associated anomalies such as mitral stenosis coarctation and hypoplastic left ventricle were found in 11 cases (33%). The balloon dilation of the aortic valve was accomplished through the right carotid cut-down approach in neonates and patients with body weight
