In brief: Inherited blood vesl
This artery narrowing happens during blood vessel growth in the fetus, and can rarely be diagnosed before birth.
Many narrowings have to be fixed surgically to prevent death or severe disability.

In brief: Congenital defect
It is a narrowing of the aorta, the major blood vessel that branches off your heart and delivers blood to your body.
It is usually congenital, and may range from mild to severe. Surgery may be required as a newborn if critical. It may not be detected until older, depending on severity. It often occurs along with other heart defects. It requires surgery or catheter balloon and/or stenting.
