A malfunctioning aorta will result in which of the following?

A oxygenated blood would not be transported to the body’s cells.

The aorta is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood from the heart to the upper and lower extremities. If the aorta is not functioning correctly and is unable to pump oxygenated blood, this would most likely result in the death of cells throughout the body, as cells need oxygen to perform cellular respiration to generate energy within the cell.[Human Body Science]
