Today we discussed a case of Coaractation of Aorta.

Clinical findings, what to look for, how to summarise and present to the examiner. Differential and management plan.

Learning points fro participants were:

  • Describe complex cardiac lesion – avoid giving a specific diagnosis
  • + ve finding, differential diagnosis, investigations and presentation
  • ALWAYS feel for FEMORALS – if not – definitely ASK.
  • Mention scars in summary
  • Do not over interpret clinical signs.
