[Turner's syndrome and heart surgery. Presentation of 3 clinical cases].

[Article in Spanish]


Three patients with Turner's Syndrome are shown; one associated with coarctation of the aorta, other with patent ductus arteriosus and the last one with congenital valvular aortic stenosis. The cytogenetic and clinical picture of the disease are reviewed, also its association with some cardiovascular malformations. The results of the surgical treatment of the congenital heart disease are reported. The difficulties to establish the operatory indication are described and besides the technical problems that occur frequently in these patients.
