Coarctation of Aorta
Coarctation of the Aorta (COA) is a congenital defect of the heart where the aorta is narrower than usual. The aorta is the main artery carrying blood from the heart to the rest of the body. If there is a constriction, this will result in high blood pressure and/or heart damage. A surgical intervention would be necessary to either surgically repair the constriction or pace a heart stent to open up the constriction.
