ⓘ Double aortic arch

Double aortic arch is a relatively rare congenital cardiovascular malformation. DAA is an anomaly of the aortic arch in which two aortic arches form a complete vascular ring that can compress the trachea and/or esophagus. Most commonly there is a larger right arch behind and a smaller left aortic arch in front of the trachea/esophagus. The two arches join to form the descending aorta which is usually on the left side. In some cases the end of the smaller left aortic arch closes and the vascular tissue becomes a fibrous cord. Although in these cases a complete ring of two patent aortic arches is not present, the term vascular ring’ is the accepted generic term even in these anomalies.

Symptoms associated with compression of the trachea, esophagus, or as a complete vascular ring. The diagnosis can often be suspected or made an x-ray, barium esophagram, or echocardiography. Computed tomography CT or magnetic resonance imaging MRI shows the relationship of the aortic arches to the trachea and esophagus, as well as the degree of narrowing of the trachea. Bronchoscopy may be useful for internal evaluation of the degree of tracheomalacia. Treatment is surgical and is indicated in all symptomatic patients. Currently, the risk of mortality or significant morbidity after surgical division of the small low arch. However, the preoperative degree of tracheomalacia has an important impact on postoperative recovery. In some patients it may take from several months to 1-2 years for the obstructive respiratory symptoms, rales disappear.
