Abstract

Abstract Immediate operation in infants suffering from severe congestive heart failure and coarctation of the aorta associated with hypoplasia of the distal transverse aortic arch often poses a difficult technical problem. Frequently the anastomosis between the hypoplastic arch and the descending thoracic aorta fails to relieve the gradient across the hypoplastic segment appreciably. A technique of enlarging the lumen of the distal arch and thereby further lowering the gradient has been found effective and is presented.
