Abstract

We report the case of a 2-month-old baby with a double aortic arch, type C atresia of the left arch and severe hypoplasia of the right aortic arch between the right carotid and subclavian arteries, resulting in systemic obstruction, left ventricular dysfunction and congestive heart failure. Surgical augmentation of the right aortic arch ameliorated the obstruction with improvement in left ventricular function and symptoms.
