Surgical Outcomes in Pediatric Patients With Coarctation and VSD
Staged Approach to Coarctation and VSD Can Offer Optimal Outcomes

Recently, a paper was published that compared outcomes of patients requiring repair of aortic coarctation and ventricular septal defect. Some surgeons opt to repair both defects in one surgery while other surgeons do the repair in two separate operations. Recently at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, we have adopted the practice of correcting both defects during the same operation but through two separate incisions (one on the chest and the other through the ribs on the side. This reduces the amount of time the patient is on the heart-lung bypass machine during surgery. This study is a review of patient charts to compare outcomes of patients who have had surgery to repair their coarctation and VSD during 2002 through 2005.

This study is a retrospective chart review of patients who carry the diagnosis of aortic coarctation and VSD and have had their surgical repair at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta between the dates of January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2005. The data collected will be surgical data such as type of repair, and the time the patient required cross clamp, circulatory arrest and cardiopulmonary bypass while in the operating room for the repair(s). We would also like to gather post-operative information such as time the patient required ventilation, whether they required a re-operation during the same admission, along with intensive care hours and hospital length of stay.
