Undiagnosed aberrant right subclavian artery: pitfall in aortic arch surgery

Published in Cardiovascular Surgery. 2003, vol. 11, no. 1, p. 61-3
Abstract Selected cerebral perfusion as brain protection via right subclavian artery during aortic arch aneurysm repair adds safety, but may be jeopardized by aortic arch anomalies not readily recognized preoperatively. We describe a case of transverse aortic arch aneurysm repair where an undiagnosed aberrant right subclavian artery was cannulated for selective brain protection.
