Interventional treatment of critical coarctation of the aorta in an extremely low birth weight preterm neonate

  • Pawel Dryzek (a1), Sebastian Goreczny (a1) and Marek Kopala (a2)

Abstract

The authors describe successful balloon angioplasty of aortic coarctation in a preterm neonate weighing 670 grams. The intervention was performed in an open incubator to ensure stable temperature comfort and to minimise the risk of hypothermia during the procedure of obtaining surgical vessel access, performing balloon angioplasty, and closure of the wound.
