A one-stage repair was performed for correction of the intracardiac malformations associated with coarctation of aorta in five pateints or interrupted aortic arch in eight patients. The ages ranged from four to 294 (median 35) days. The anomalies within the heart were a ventricular septal defect with or without subaortic stenosis (n=7), an aortopulmonary window (n=2), common arterial trunk (n=2), aortic valvar stenosis (n=1) and the TaussigBing anomaly (n=1). Surgery was performed through a median sternotomy employing cardiopulmonary bypass with moderate to deep hypothermia. In terms of the aortic reconstruction, an extended direct anastomosis was performed in 10 patients, while a vascular graft was interposed in three. So long as the aortic cannula did not interfere with the proximal anastomotic site on the aorta, circulatory arrest was avoided. As for surgery within the heart, the ventricular septal defects were closed via the right atrium with myotomy and myectomy if a morphological substrate for subaortic stenosis was confirmed (n=4). There were two hospital deaths (15.4%) due to low cardiac output. In patients who underwent myotomy and myectomy for subaortic stenosis, the postoperative pressure gradient across the aortic valve was negligible. We conclude that surgical results of one-stage repair for the intracardiac malformations associated with interrupted aortic arch or aortic coarctation are reasonable. We suggest that the early relief of obstruction within the left ventricular outflow tract may have played some role in the favorable outcome.
