Percutaneous translurninal coronary angioplasty in a two-month old with coronary stenosis presenting as congenital cardiomyopathy: Acute results and intermediate follow-up CATHETERIZATION AND CARDIOVASCULAR INTERVENTIONS Cheng, C. W., Lee, D. P., Rosenthal, D. N., Feinstein, J. A. 2006; 68 (4): 632-636


Congenital or nonsurgically acquired obstructive coronary artery disease in infancy is exceedingly rare, and previous reports of catheter-based therapies in very young patients have been solely in patients having undergone arterial switch or other cardiovascular surgical procedures. We describe a previously unreported cause for ventricular dysfunction and heart failure in an infant, isolated congenital circumflex coronary artery stenosis, and successful treatment with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. Technical considerations, immediate results, and 3-year follow-up are provided.
