Abstract

Ten patients between the ages of 10 and 17 years underwent ascending aorta-descending aorta bypass grafts for recurrent coarctation at the Oregon Health Sciences University from 1975 to 1984. The combined approach through a left thoracotomy and median sternotomy was used in all the patients. This operation was used when the segment of recoarctation was long, dense adhesions were present, collaterals were inadequate, or when a cardiac operation was necessary for an associated lesion. All the patients survived the operation, and the long-term results to date have been satisfactory.
