Balloon dilation of miscellaneous lesions: results of Valvuloplasty and Angioplasty of Congenital Anomalies Registry.

Author information

Lillie Frank Abercrombie Section of Cardiology, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas 77030.


Data on 111 lesions, in addition to pulmonary valve, aortic valve, branch pulmonary stenosis, native coarctation and recoarctation, were submitted to the Valvuloplasty and Angioplasty of Congenital Anomalies Registry. Because there was a very heterogenous group of lesions both in types of lesions and techniques of dilation, only minimal data can be offered concerning the efficacy of the dilation of any or all of these lesions. The registry data do, however, demonstrate the safety of these dilations compared to alternative surgical therapy.
