At follow-up echocardiogram at age 7 months, the coarctation
had recurred and required balloon dilation.
Data from the UK on over 100 stent procedures for coarctation
from a single centre (59), demonstrated that stenting for aortic coarctation
is effective with low-immediate complication rates.
In addition to the studies where the bicuspid structure of the aortic valve was confirmed morphologically, an echocardiographic study (8) described 11 families in whom 28 members had a BAV, 3 (11%) of whom had associated coarctation
of the aorta.
Indication 1 Sedation during administration of continuous inhalatio- nal therapy with albuterol for status asthmaticus 2 Sedation after thoracoplasty for pectus excavatum deformity 3 Control of agitation from substance (alcohol, tobacco, cannabinoids) withdrawal after repair of aortic coarctation
after previous repair of traumatic arch injury 4 Control of postoperative emergence delirium 5 Control of postoperative shivering Table 2.
Acquired atheromatous coarctation
of the aortic arch is uncommon.
Other potential abnormalities mimicking aortic dissection on axial images include coarctation
, pseudocoarctation, saccular aneurysm and pseudoaneursym.
A metaanalysis of six studies found that increased nuchal translucency was associated with 33% of the studies' cases of atrial or ventricular septal defect, 25% of the cases of tetralogy of Fallot, 50% of the cases of coarctation
of the aorta or aortic stenosis, 55% of the cases of hypoplastic left heart, and 41% of the cases of multiple cardiac anomalies (Am.
Congenital heart disease; specifically, aortic stenosis, coarctation
, transposition of the great arteries, or tetralogy of Fallot.
January 17 2001: Coarctation
Repair - to prevent narrowing of the arteries.
Examples of mediastinal vascular anomalies include left aortic arch, cervical aortic arch, right aortic arch with aberrant left subclavian artery, right arch with mirror-image branching, double aortic arch, aortic coarctation
, persistent left superior vena cava, a double superior vena cava, retroaortic innominate vein, circumaortic innominate veins, interruption of the inferior vena cava with azygos and hemiazygos continuation, pulmonary artery sling, congenital absence of the left pulmonary artery, pulmonary valvular stenosis, patent ductus arteriosus, pulmonary varix, and partial anomalous pulmonary venous return.
He was born with a heart so full of holes, that his condition - coarctation
of the aorta and multiple ventricula septal defects - is nicknamed a "swiss cheese heart.
Two studies (published in three reports) were located in the same study area, covered overlapping time periods, and analyzed some of the same anomaly groups (VSDs, coarctation
of the aorta, tetralogy of Fallot) in relarion to [SO.
