bouddjemlineMehul Patel photoComment from Pr. Younes Boudjemline (Paris) and co-editor Dr. Mehul Patel (Detroit, MI), editors of congenital heart disease interventions Journal Watch:  This is a retrospective study from a single center in Germany evaluating low-profiled, balloon-expandable, cobalt-chrome stent (Osypka BabyStent® ) to treat aortic re CoA or reobstruction of the aortic arch after former surgery in 4 infants. The stent is still investigational and comes precrimped on a valvuloplasty balloon catheter (Osypka VACS II 6.0/ 20 mm, nominal pressure 3.5 atm. (max. balloon diameter 6.6 mm at 4.0 atm. RBP), 0.018 inner lumen) ensuring 4 Fr sheath compatibility.  The unique hook and eye design is present in each cell aligned in a line. The elastic joints between the cells as well as hook and eye connections can be opened when the balloon diameter exceeds 12 mm. The median age of the study population was 10 weeks (range 5-21) with median gain in aortic diameter from median 2.25 mm to 5.3 mm. All procedures were technically successful and patients were followed for a median duration of 8.5 months.  The authors fairly concluded that BabyStent® implantation for recoarctation was effective. However since not enough somatic growth was achieved in this relatively short follow up period, none of  the stents required over dilatation, leaving that aspect of functionality unchecked. A prospective multicenter survey has been initiated by the group to derive more information.

Take home points:

  1. Once approved, this stent with radial force comparable to a coronary stent may be a very useful addition to the pediatric interventional armamentarium.
  2. More bench information may be required on the behavior of the fracture gap segment with respect to differential thickness, vulnerability to rupture and future dilatation.
