When endocarditis occurs it is nearly always on the bicuspid valve rather than on the coarctation. 21 Congenitally corrected transposition Corrected transposition (atrioventricular discordance with ventriculoarterial discordance, congenitally corrected transposition or l-TGA) is usually accompanied by other defects, particularly VSD and subpulmonary and pulmonary valve stenosis or an Ebstein-like malformation of the left-sided tricuspid valve with or without regurgitation. Although l-TGA is an uncommon congenital anomaly, survival into adulthood is frequent either after surgery or with isolated l-TGA.

Ideally, coarctation intervention should be carried out before pregnancy. However, when a pregnant patient with uncorrected coarctation is encountered, strenuous exercise should be avoided in an effort to minimize stress on the arterial wall, because surges in blood pressure and pulse pressure with exercise are not wholly prevented by blood pressure-lowering drugs. Patients with coarctation of the aorta have an abnormal aortic wall and are prone to aortic dissection. The risk of aortic dissection increases during pregnancy as a result of the physiological, hemodynamic and hormonal changes that occur.
