Atresia of the Aortic Arch: Repair by Single-Stage Extra-Anatomic Ascending-to-Descending Aortic Bypass Graft Surgery
July 18, 2017
Aortic arch atresia is a rare entity among adults and may coexist with other cardiovascular surgical diseases. Single-stage extra-anatomic ascending-to-descending aortic bypass graft surgery is a safe and less invasive technique for correction of this complex congenital disease with other concomitant surgical cardiovascular disorders.
