Coarctation of the Aorta

View Article: MedPix Image - MedPix Case

Affiliation: Uniformed Services University

ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Coarctation of the Aorta

History: 14 year old male with chronic shortness of breath

Findings: PA view of the chest demonstrates an abnormal contour to the aortic knob, with a focal indentation, with prominence of the descending aorta distal to this region. Axial contrast-enhanced CT examination of the chest demonstrates a focal narrowing of the aorta just distal to the ostium of the left subclavian artery with post-stenotic dilation of the descending thoracic aorta, consistent with coarctation of the aorta. Note also the enlarged collateral vessels in the internal mammary and subcostal distributions.

Ddx: Coarctation of the aorta

Dxhow: By CT, as described in the images.

Exam: Unknown

No MeSH data available.


Contrast-enhanced axial CT images and oblique sagittal reconstructed images of the chest demonstrates a focal narrowing of the aorta just distal to the ostium of the left subclavian artery with post-stenotic dilation of the descending thoracic aorta, consistent with coarctation of the aorta.
