Interrupted Aortic Arch

Exercise Concerns

If no complications develop or persist after surgery, normal levels of activity may be pursued. However, it is important that the patient be examined regularly to guard against the development of stenosis in the aorta, either at the site of the aortic arch repair or in the left ventricular outflow tract area within the heart.

Anyone with congenital heart disease, repaired or non-repaired, should consult with their cardiologist about physical activity to review the risks.
