Who has the most common aortic coarctation?

Coarctation of the aorta is more common in certain genetic diseases (for example, Turner syndrome, Williams syndrome), as well as in newborns whose mothers have diabetes or take hydantoin-based drugs (these drugs can be used for epilepsy and other diseases of the nervous system).
