Abstract

Surgical repair of severe forms of congenital stenosis of the left ventricular outflow tract seemed to be problematic because of their complex and unfavorable morphology. Commissurotomy of stenotic aortic valves with narrow aortic annulus led only to temporary hemodynamic improvement, and it had to be regarded as a merely palliative measure [3, 5]. The development of surgical procedures for enlargement of congenitally stenotic left ventricular outflow tract has led to significant advances in the treatment of these complex cardiac anomalies.
