Abstract

Right aortic arch anomalies are a spectrum of malformations that include right aortic arch with mirror image branching, right aortic arch with an aberrant left subclavian artery, and double aortic arch. Although these are rare anomalies, they are of importance as they form vascular rings, which can cause symptoms in the newborn period. These anomalies are not detected with routine cardiac views, and it is only with the 3-vessel, and the 3-vessel tracheal view that they can be identified and characterized. We describe specific sonographic findings of these anomalies on the 3-vessel and the 3-vessel tracheal view.
