Congenital aortic stenosis and patent ductus arteriosus in the adult.
Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
Concurrent aortic stenosis and patent ductus arteriosus are not infrequent in children but are rare in adults. An adult case is described with diagnosis by cardiac catheterization and magnetic resonance imaging and with management by combined aortic valve replacement and patent ductus ligation. Review of the English-language literature produced only 8 such cases in adults, 2 of which were managed by a single-stage operation. Successful diagnosis in the adult requires careful observation at cardiac catheterization, and simultaneous valve replacement and ductus ligation may be a useful option in patient management.
