Aortic/mitral obstruction and coarctation of the aorta.
The prevalence, anatomy and physiology, clinical manifestations, laboratory findings, and management of patients with aortic/mitral obstruction and coarctation of the aorta are assessed. Subaortic stenosis reviewed includes discreet membranous and tunnel subaortic stenosis as well as hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. The discussion of valvular aortic stenosis includes both congenital and acquired forms of the disease. Supravalvular aortic stenosis is described along with coarctation of the aorta. Mitral valvular stenosis includes the congenital as well as acquired variety with focus on the congenital lesion. Current opinion regarding the medical, the cardiac catheterization, interventional, and the surgical approaches to therapy is presented.
