Pathology and molecular mechanisms of coarctation of the aorta and its association with the ductus arteriosus

Abstract

Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is defined as a congenital stenosis of the thoracic aorta and is one of the most common congenital cardiovascular diseases. Despite successful surgical treatment for CoA, arterial abnormalities, including refractory hypertension, aortic aneurysm, and proatherogenic phenotypic changes, frequently affect patients’ quality of… (More)
