Optimal management of a VSD at the time of coarctation repair is controversial. The retrospective review of the Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium 1982-2007 evaluated outcomes for 2,022 patients. The presence of a VSD increased operative mortality 4-fold to 8.3%. Patients underwent coarct repair and VSD closure at an older age (87 days) than for
