2,3 Presence of feeble femoral artery pulsation with left ventricular dysfunction and hypertrophy should raise the suspicion of coarctation of aorta.
Various modalities can be used to diagnose coarctation of aorta but given the accuracy of non invasive methods such as MR/CT angiography they are frequently employed.
While number of cases of VSD, ASD, AS and Coarctation of aorta is comparable to international studies done in Canada, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan14,15 and also to a local study by Rehman F et al.
The two most common shunt lesions associated with coarctation of aorta are: patent ductus arteriosus and ventricular septal defect (2).
His 2D transthoracic echo showed marked left ventricular hypertrophy with good systolic function along with severe juxta-ductal coarctation of aorta very close to origin of left Subclavian artery with peak instantaneous gradient of 120 mmHg.
2011), we also considered eight subgroups of cardiac anomalies: transposition of great vessels (Q203), ventricular septal defect (Q210), atrial septal defect (Q211), atrioventricular defect (Q212), tetralogy of Fallot (Q213), tricuspid atresia and stenosis (Q224), pulmonary valve stenosis (Q221), and coarctation of aorta (Q251).
14%) each was diagnosed to have aortic stenosis, single ventricle, Coarctation of aorta, peripheral pulmonary stenosis, pulmonary atresia, tricuspid atresia, complex CHD and 2(2.
Coarctation of aorta (CoA) constitutes around 7% of all congenital heart diseases.
Additional echocardiographic findings were coarctation of aorta (CoA) with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in case 1, abnormally partially venous return anomaly in case 2 and mitral valve prolapse (MVP) in case 4.
21,22 There is a significant difference in the incidence of Coarctation of aorta in the developing countries as compared to that of developed countries.
