Q25.1: Coarctation of aorta
Congenital anomaly of aorta or its branches
- Congenital anomaly of ascending aorta
- Congenital anomaly of aortic arch
- Congenital anomaly of aortic arch branch
- Congenital anomaly of descending thoracic or abdominal aorta
Coarctation of the aorta generally indicates a narrowing of the descending thoracic aorta just distal to the left subclavian artery. However, the term may also be accurately used to refer to a region of narrowing anywhere in the thoracic or abdominal aorta.
