Coarctation of the aorta and hypoplasia of the aortic arch

Coarctation of the aorta is a malformation in which the aorta narrows just after the outlet that supplies blood to the head and arms. This restricts the passage of fluid and the heart has to work harder to pump it to the other organs.

Some patients develop hypoplasia when the reduction involves the entire aortic arch.
