Cervical aortic arch (CAA) is a rare congenital abnormality in which the aortic arch is situated cranially to its usual position, often associated with complex developmental alteration of aortic laterality and branching. More recently, some authors reported deletion of chromosome 22q11 (del22q11) in few patients with CAA. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical, anatomopathological and genetic pattern of 10 new cases of CAA. From 1975 to 2003, 10 patients with CAA (4 female, mean age… CONTINUE READING
