This single institution observational study compares clinical outcomes and resource utilization associated with two surgical approaches for single-stage repair of coarctation of the aorta and ventricular septal defect. Authors found that single-stage two-incision repair of both defects in appropriately selected patients may be associated with higher value of care compared to single-stage one incision repair.
