Abstract

Right aortic arch is a relatively rare congenital anomaly. The combination of a right aortic arch, a right patent ductus arteriosus, and an aberrant left subclavian artery in a child with an otherwise structurally normal heart is very uncommon. We report the successful transcatheter coil occlusion of a right-sided patent ductus arteriosus in a child with the above-mentioned anatomy. To our knowledge, such a case has not been reported in the English-language medical literature to date.
