Abstract

Isolation of the right subclavian artery (RSCA) from the pulmonary artery is a rare anomaly of the aortic arch. We report a case of an isolated RSCA from the right pulmonary artery that was discovered at the time of device occlusion of a patent arterial duct. We review the literature and discuss management options. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
