Abstract

We consider that angioplasty of Blalock-Taussig shunt is indicated in those symptomatic patients, in whom a complete surgical correction is contraindicated. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the procedure, the coronary angioplasty, under monorail system is very useful for the stenotic modified Blalock-Taussig. It can be an effective technique when there is a postoperative thrombosis of the fistula.
