The prospective randomized study included 54 patients underwent repair of coarctation of the aorta.
Patients were divided into 2 groups: reverse subclavian flap aortoplasty (1 group), and extended end-to-end
anastomosis (2 group). Postoperative follow-up was 25 (21; 30) months. Complications in the long term
were present in 15 patients (27,7%). We have assessed quality of life in children from 2 to 4 years old using
Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory™ 3.0 Cardiac Module. We found that despite of variety of non lifethreathening
complication in late postoperative period the quality of life was high in both groups.
