Abstract

Balloon dilatation is increasingly used to treat a wide range of congenital and acquired vascular stenoses in infancy and childhood.1-4 However, to our knowledge, there has been only 1 published report of a successful dilatation of a stenosed modified (polytetrafluoroethylene) Blalock-Taussig shunt.5 In our report, we have reviewed the technique used and the results obtained in 8 patients with critically stenosed or completely occluded graft.
