The term 'coarctation' is applied to both a narrowing and a complete obliteration of the lumen of the aorta at or near the insertion of the ligamentum arteriosum—the obliterated ductus Botalli. This is found in the descending limb of the aortic arch distal to the origin of the subclavian artery. Of the three examples described in this paper, in the first, which occurred in a man 19 years of age, the occlusion was complete and death resulted from rupture of the aorta. The second was in a man, aged 38 years, in whom the lumen of the aorta was reduced
