BACKGROUND Coarctation of the aorta represents a unique mechanism of hypertension with reduced survival even after the anatomic lesion is fixed. Coronary artery disease has been cited as the cause of one-third of deaths in adults with repaired aortic coarctation, yet no prospective studies have identified the substrate for these events. We hypothesized that noninvasive angiography multi-slice computed tomography (CTA) of the coronary arteries and perfusion by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR… CONTINUE READING
