Interrupted Aortic Arch: Brief Review and Summary of an Eighteen-Year Experience


Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is an uncommon congenital anomaly representing approximately 1% of congenital heart disease.

Because the median age at death in untreated cases is 10 days, this condition usually occurs as a complicated neonatal surgical emergency.
