When do we intervene in a patient with coarctation of aorta in children?

In this video, Dr. Smita Mishra, Associate Director, Paediatric Cardiologist, Jaypee Hospital, Noida, will discuss about the intervention in coarctation of aorta in children. Coarctation of aorta generally presents early in life. If the baby is sick and lower limb pulses are absent the early surgery is recommended. If the baby is presented late then clinical symptoms are evaluated and balloon angioplasty is recommended.
