ABSTRACT

Coarctation of heart aorta is a serious congenital defect of the aorta manifested in the  narrowing of the aorta. Absence of treatment of that defect can result in a heart failure or death. Multi-bar Scanner is one of the best and available diagnostic methods. The value of CT in the visualization of aortic coarctation is discussed in the article. If any signs or symptoms should appear, the most common symptom is high blood pressure (hypertension), shortness of breath, especially during physical exercise, headache, muscle weakness, leg cramps or cold feet.
