Keywords:Coarctation of Aorta (CoA), Aortic Surgery, Cardiac surgery, Aortic aneurysm, Proximal DTA aneurysm
In its simplest form, coarctation of the aorta (CoA) refers to congenital narrowing of the thoracic aorta. Usually, a significant pressure gradient between the arms and legs is suggestive of the diagnosis. With the advancement of aortic imaging in our country many CoA patients are diagnosed at an adult age, but the management still carries a challenge. We reported a case of 30-year-old lady with CoA with an aortic aneurysm involving proximal left subclavian artery with proximal DTA and LV dysfunction.
