Abstract

Since the first successful repair of aortic coarctation by Dr Clarence Crafoord in 1945, there are few data regarding late follow-up of homografts in this position. Between 1957 and 1959, 7 patients underwent surgical correction of aortic coarctation by Professor József Kudász at the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Semmelweis University, using freeze-dried aortic homograft. We were able to locate 4 of these patients and found no significant complications due to the operation. We report on this 40-year follow-up of implanted aortic homograft.
