In brief: Good
Females with coaractation have a good prognosis.
Patients who are not treated for coarctation of the aorta may reach the age of 35 years; fewer than 20% survive to age 50 years. If coarctation is repaired before the age of 14 years, the 20-year survival rate is 91%. If coarctation is repaired after the age of 14 years, the 20-year survival rate is 79%.

In brief: Generally Good
Prognosis does not depend on sex very much.
It depends more on age of diagnosis and whether there are other significant medical conditions. In general, coarctation is easily treated with surgery or catheterization. And there tends to be 10-20% recurrence risk; most recurrences can be treated in the cath lab.
