Abstract

Aortic coarctation (CA) is a congenital focal narrowing of the aortic lumen forming part of an arteriopathy generalized (5-8% of all congenital heart diseases). Classically distinct in a predeterminal and postductal form, at present this classification is not used much. Clinical manifestations of affected patients range from systolic hypertension of the originating vessels a upstream of the part coarctated to the hypotension dependent on those downstream and strictly depend on the degree of stenosis.
