Left heart bypass for repair of aortic coarctation in children: Technical tips and pitfalls

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Spinal cord injury secondary to coarctation repair in children is a serious, though relatively uncommon, complication. Several measures have been proposed to minimize this risk, which seems to affect more older children than neonates and those with inadequate collateral circulation. Left heart bypass has been proposed as a protective strategy.
