In conclusion, recurrent coarctation is not uncommon after stage I palliation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome. These lesions are amenable to balloon angioplasty, results are probably better with higher pressure balloons, and the lesion can be approached prograde to avoid femoral arterial injury. Although a second recurrence can be seen, recurrent lesions may be amenable to redilation.
