Abstract

The combination of right aortic arch with aberrant left brachiocephalic artery and aortic coarctation is very rare. Here, we report the case of a 3.1-kg neonate with multiple malformations who received detailed preoperative anatomical definition by chest computed tomography (CT) scan and eventually underwent one-stage repair at the age of 17 days. The surgical technique included left brachiocephalic artery detachment and its end-to-end anastomosis to the branch of a monofurcated pulmonary homograft used to treat the aortic arch coarctation simultaneously. Postoperative control chest CT scan performed 3 months postoperatively revealed optimal repair. Considerations on imaging and surgical technique are reported.
