Abstract

The long-term outcome of 226 patients surviving surgical repair of aortic coarctation was studied 15 to 30 years after their operations. Twenty-six patients (11.5%) died during the follow-up period; coarctation recurred in 11%, late unexplained arterial hypertension was observed in 66%, and associated cardiac anomalies requiring subsequent surgical repair arose in 4.8%.
