COARTACION DE LA AORTA PDF

Feeding difficulties Pale skin In some infants, having difficulty feeding can increase the risk of developing other conditions, including necrotizing enterocolitis, a serious intestinal disease that happens when tissue in the small or large intestine is injured or begins to die off. If signs or symptoms appear later in life, the most common sign is high blood pressure hypertension. Occasionally other tests may be ordered, such as chest x-ray, computed tomography CT scan, electrocardiogram EKG , pulse oximetry, cardiac catheterization, or magnetic resonance imaging MRI. Most symptomatic newborns will have surgery very shortly after they are born. Children diagnosed when they are older also will need surgery, but because the symptoms are usually less severe, more time can be taken to plan for surgery.

Children diagnosed when they are older also will need surgery, but because the symptoms are usually less severe, more time can be taken to plan for surgery. You can print these sample questions to use as a basis for discussion with the doctor. Outcomes will vary across different programs.

It is appropriate to inquire about the outcomes of a surgical group or surgeon during your consultation. Surgical techniques to repair aortic coarctation include: Resection with end-to-end or extended end-to-end anastomosis — Removes the narrowed segment of the aorta resection and connects the two ends of the aorta anastomosis Patch aortoplasty — Cuts across the constricted area of the aorta and then attaches a patch of synthetic material or a portion of the blood vessel that delivers blood to your left arm left subclavian artery to widen the blood vessel Resection and interposition graft repair — Usually undertaken in older children and adults with coarctation - removes the narrowed segment of the aorta resection.

An uninflated balloon is placed through the opening of the narrowed aorta. When the balloon is inflated, the aorta widens and blood flows more easily.

The heart specialist may elect to leave a metal stent in the area of narrowing which will keep the aorta open after the balloon is deflated. Coarctation of the aorta can be cured with surgery, so once your child undergoes an operation to correct the defect, he or she can expect to live a normal, healthy life.

Recovery Recovery Care will be taken when re-introducing feeds, especially in cases of tight coarctation or a child that presents in shock. Hospital length of stay will vary depending on age and severity of the defect. Your child will continue to be followed by a heart specialist. The most common long-term complication of coarctation of the aorta is high blood pressure. Although blood pressure usually falls after the defect has been repaired, it may still remain higher than normal.

In some cases, the portion of the aorta that was repaired can re-narrow, possibly even years after treatment. Rarely, the segment of the aorta that has been repaired can become weak and bulge aortic aneurysm and are at risk of rupture.
