Abstract

Medical treatment has a small role in the management of the symptomatic infant with critical aortic stenosis. Surgical intervention offers the only hope of survival; but even then, the reported mortality has been high in the past. At present, improved techniques and surgical results warrant reassessment of this high-risk lesion, and the experience at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center with 31 infants with critical aortic stenosis is now reviewed.
