Coarctation of the Aorta Surgery in India. Aortic coarctation is a narrowing of a portion of the aorta, the major artery that leads out of the heart to the body. This narrowing usually occurs at the point of curvature of the aorta, just beyond where the branches that supply the arms and head leave. From the curved portion, the vessel extends downward into the abdomen and supplies blood to the lower half of the body.No one knows exactly what causes aortic coarctation. But changes in another blood vessel – the ductus arteriosus – and its related tissues may be responsible for development of the condition.
