PURPOSE: to evaluate the efficacy of a right common carotid artery cutdown as alternative access in neonates and small infants requiring a balloon dilation of aortic valve stenosis. In infants, the femoral approach is limited by difficulties in advancing the catheter across the valve and by the risk of femoral artery injuries.

Abstract

PURPOSE: to evaluate the efficacy of a right common carotid artery cutdown as alternative access in neonates and small infants requiring a balloon dilation of aortic valve stenosis. In infants, the femoral approach is limited by difficulties in advancing the catheter across the valve and by the risk of femoral artery injuries.
