Full Title

AAOCA: Anomalous Aortic Origin of a Coronary Artery

Purpose of Study

The purpose of the study is to determine the outcome of surgical intervention versus observation in children and young adults with AAOCA. To do this, the investigators will create a risk stratification model utilizing a large multi-institutional registry under the auspices of the Congenital Heart Surgeon Society (CHSS). This will enable us to test the hypothesis that subsets of subjects with AACOA can be identified in whom the risk of intervention is less than the risk of observation.
