Coarctation of the aorta is a very interesting congenital anomaly in which there is a narrowing or complete obliteration of the aorta in the region of the insertion of the ductus arteriosus, distal to the origin of subclavian artery. Bonnet1 has divided this anomaly into the infantile and adult types. The infantile type consists of a diffuse narrowing of the aorta between the origin of the subclavian artery and the insertion of the ductus Botalli. The adult type is characterized by an abrupt constriction of the aorta a little beyond the subclavian artery, as if the aorta had been narrowed
