Introduction Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) counts for approximately 5% of the congenital heart defects. Most patients are operated during infancy. Late complications are restor recoarctation of the aorta, abnormal blood pressure response to exercise and hypertension at rest. Life-long follow up is therefore recommended. A number of papers report an increased risk of coronary heart disease in patients with congenital heart defects. Many factors may accelerate the arteriosclerotic process, but… CONTINUE READING
