Özet

We describe a male infant, seen at the age of 10 days, with a very rare form of vascular ring. The aortic arch was left-sided, but the aorta descended on the right, with a right-sided persistently patent arterial duct associated with interruption of the aortic arch and presence of Abbott's artery. We performed end-to-side anastomosis of the descending aorta to the ascending aorta, divided the Abbott's artery and the right-sided arterial duct, and banded the pulmonary trunk. Despite our best efforts, the patient died on the eighth day after the surgical intervention.
