Vascular Aortic Pressure in Coarctation!

According to kaplan qbank in coarctation pressure tracing in thoraic aorta is greater then abdominal aorta which is due to increase in ANG-II as renal is not adequately perfused ...
but i think pressure in thoracic and abd. aorta should be same as coarctation is proximal to thoracic aorta so pressure should be same ..

Ther would be pressure difference if coarctation is between thoracic and abd. aorta..
