Abstract

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the outcomes after surgical repair of interrupted aortic arch in patients with biventricular circulation. METHODS: We reviewed all children from a single institution (N = 177) who had interrupted aortic arch repair between 1978 and 2018. Patients were separated into simple (n = 122) and complex (n = 55) group based on their concomitant anomalies. RESULTS: Median age at repair was 6 days (range, 1-298 days) and median weight was 3.1 kg (range, 0.95-5.1 kg). Median follow-up time was 11.5 years (mean 12.6 years; range, 0.1-35.9 years). Overall early mortality was 11.9% (21 of 177) and there were 5 late deaths. Era of surgery did not impact on overall survival (P = .37)...
