What are the differential diagnoses for a 60-year-old man with long history of hypertension presenting BP of 185/35 mmHg in right arm and 120/35 mmHg at left arm?

It would be nice of you guys to give me some hints on this...

I thought about atherosclerosis at right subclavian artery, but it cannot explain the low diastolic pressure...

Thank you....:(
