A Rare Association of Coronary Artery Disease with Adult Interrupted
Aortic Arch: Choice of Treatment
AbstractInterrupted Aortic Arch is a rare congenital heart defect due to
complete luminal interruption between ascending and descending aorta.
IAA in adults is extremely rare and mostly present as systemic
hypertension with distal perfusion maintained by large systemic
collaterals formed over years. IAA in adults can be either corrected
surgically with an interposition graft or can be successfully managed
with antihypertensive drugs alone based on clinical presentation.
Herein, We present a case with an incidental finding of IAA associated
with Coronary Artery Disease and how the selection of conduits for
coronary revascularisation is affected in the face of diagnosis of IAA.
