International Journal of General Medicine, 06/04/2012Ghaffari S et al.
Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS software. Mean age of patients was 55.5 ± 47.4 months. Two–thirds of the subjects had moderate pulmonary valve stenosis. Balloon valvuloplasty failed in nearly one–fifth of the treated patients. There were 17 failures and two cases of mortality, descriptively less frequent among children >5 years; however, the observed difference was not statistically significant. Mild pulmonary valve insufficiency was a common finding.
