Abstract

D-Transposition of the great arteries is infrequently associated with anomalies of the aortic arch. We report a rare case of double aortic arch associated with D-transposition of the great arteries. The diagnosis was made by angiography and transthoracic echocardiography. The patient underwent a successful simultaneous arterial switch operation and division of the vascular ring through a median sternotomy incision.
