Hi,

This doesn't seem to be related to her cardiac history. Rarely coarctation of aorta may present with unequal pulses in arms or sensations but rarely. It can be a possibility that her arm symptoms may be due to neurological disorder or cervical spondylosis because of nerve involvement at spinal level.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
