or interrupted aortic arch were excluded from the study.
We analyzed clinical data, echo recordings, as well as data on the treatment of 115 children with aortic arch abnormalities. The group included 58 boys and 57 girls aged between 1 day and 17 years (full pediatric age range).
The following aortic arch anomalies were detected in the study group:
Left aortic arch (LAA) + aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA);
Right aortic arch (RAA) + left brachiocephalic trunk (LBCT);

Isolated left subclavian artery (iLSA) coexisting with right aortic arch is a rarely described vascular anomaly. It is a consequence of impaired aortic arch formation, when the arterial duct connects the left subclavian artery with the pulmonary trunk (Fig. 1). Other congenital defects that coexist with iLSA (60% of cases) and are usually found in the right side of the heart include tetralogy of Fallot (ToF)(1–6), double outlet right ventricle (DORV)(7), tricuspid atresia(1
