This retrospective study analyzed the level of concordance between clinical and autopsy diagnosis of coarctation of aorta over 10 years. Utilizing the Goldmann classification, the concordance rate was found to be 16%. Major discrepancies (Class I and II) were found in 56% cases and minor discrepancies (Class III and IV) in 28% cases.
