Abstract

The majority of patients were hypertensive at long-term follow-up after coarctation repair. This is caused by restenosis, defined by a gradient of greater than 20 mm Hg, in only a few patients. Even in those without prosthetic material or minimal-grade restenosis, there is a substantial incidence of arterial hypertension.
