NARANJO UGALDE, Alfredo M.; SELMAN-HOUSSEIN SOSA, Eugenio; CARDENAS GONZALEZ, Felipe  e  MANTILLA ZAMBRANO, Juan M.. Cirugía de la válvula aórtica en Pediatría. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2002, vol.74, n.4. ISSN 0034-7531.

Congenital lesions are the main cause for indicating aortic valve surgery in pediatric ages. The incidence of such lesions and the surgical behavior followed to manage them in the Cardiocenter of "William Soler" University Pediatric Hospital for 14 years are presented in the paper. Twenty five patients - 2 infants and 23 over five-years old- diagnosed with aortic lesion- were operated on. 72% of them presented with aortic stenosis. Open commissurotomy was performed on 17 patients. Six valve replacements using mechanical prostheses and one using autograft were carried out. Complications occurred in six patients in the post-operative phase. The mortality rate was 4%.
