What is coarctation of the aorta?

Coarctation of the aorta is a rare congenital abnormality in which the aorta, a large major blood vessel that delivers oxygen rich blood to the body, is narrowed. This means that the heart has to work harder to pump blood to your body. This may lead to high blood pressure and/or heart damage.
