Critical Aortic Stenosis: Surgical Results in Infancy

  • Jean Paul Binet


Critical aortic stenosis in newborns remains a severe malformation. The hospital mortality of the published surgical series ranges between 30 and 50%. Trinkle proposed in 1975, an original, fast and simple technique of aortic commissurotomy through the apex of the left ventricle without bypass. This presentation will give our surgical results in Marie-Lannelongue Hospital using this technique of aortic commissurotomy without bypass since the beginning of our experience in January 1979.
