Moderately hypoplastic arches: do they reliably grow into adulthood after conventional coarctation repair?
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  20103510     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: Patients with moderately hypoplastic arch treated by conventional coarctation repair have adequate growth of the distal arch demonstrated at long-term follow-up, but one-third of them keep a small proximal arch. This subset of patients is at risk of developing hypertension and may warrant further investigation.
