The video talks about the follow up patient who were treated for coarctation of aorta by Dr. Smita Mishra, Paediatric Cardiologist, Associate Director - Jaypee Hospital. Coarctation of aorta might be an etiological factor for hypertension. These babies should be assessed for blood pressure rise and should be diagnosed early and treated with proper medication.
