arteria lusoria

G-R Joliat, C Dubuis, S Déglise
We report the case of a 58-year-old man who presented with thoraco-abdominal pain and right lower limb ischemia due to type B aortic dissection. Moreover, the patient was discovered to have several concomitant aortic arch anomalies (bovine arch, arteria lusoria, and left vertebral artery arising from the aortic arch). Taking into account this complex anatomy, emergent femoral exploration with fenestration and thrombectomy was performed. The blood flow to the right lower limb was restored. A few days later the aortic dissection spread proximally, and the aortic arch dilatation enlarged...

We present a case report of two rare arterial anomalies diagnosed during transradial coronary catheterization-arteria lusoria (aberrant right subclavian artery) and superdominant right coronary artery. Importantly, these anomalies may cause difficulty in performance or interpretation of catheterization procedure, especially in urgent situation and with wide acceptance of transradial approach. To the best of our knowledge, the combination of these anomalies has never been described in the literature.

Arteria Lusoria or aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is present in 0.6-1.4% of individuals. It typically remains clinically silent and is often discovered during angiographic procedures. The presence of ARSA can make a right transradial approach for coronary angiography and angioplasty technically more difficult. With the use of catheter support, we describe two cases in which a right transradial approach for catheterization was successful in the setting of ARSA. As such, the presence of ARSA does not warrant abandoning a transradial approach for coronary angiography and angioplasty...

Dysphagia is an impairment of swallowing that may involve any structures from the mouth to the stomach. Esophageal dysphagia presents with the sensation of food sticking, pain with swallowing, substernal pressure, or chronic heartburn. There are many causes of esophageal dysphagia, such as motility disorders and mechanical and inflammatory diseases. Infrequently dysphagia arises from extrinsic compression of the esophagus from any vascular anomaly of the aortic arch. The most common embryologic abnormality of the aortic arch is aberrant right subclavian artery, clinically known as arteria lusoria...

INTRODUCTION: A nonrecurrent laryngeal nerve (NRLN) is a rare anatomical variation in which the nerve enters the larynx directly off the cervical vagus nerve. CASE REPORT: We present 2 patients who underwent thyroid surgery for benign disease. Intraoperatively, type 2a and 1 NRLN were identified. Due to the frequent association with a vascular abnormality, an ultrasound and a computed tomography were performed which showed a right aberrant subclavian artery with a retroesophageal course and a common trunk of the common carotids in both patients...

BACKGROUND: Intrathoracic mesothelial cysts are congenital lesions due to an abnormal development of the pericardial coelom. They are usually asymptomatic and found incidentally on chest radiography or computed tomography. As their classic anatomical location is in the cardiophrenic angle, they are also referred to pleuropericardial cysts. CASE REPORT: A 50-year-old male presented with a history of chest pain. Physical examination and chest X-ray were normal. Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a cystic lesion in the posterior and upper mediastinum...

A 37-year-old female Caucasian cadaver with an aberrant right subclavian artery extending from the left side of the aortic arch and following a retro-oesophageal course is presented. A non-recurrent right laryngeal nerve and a thyroid ima artery arising from the lower part of the middle third of the right common carotid artery coexisted. The brachiocephalic trunk was absent, while both common carotid arteries and left subclavian artery followed their normal course. The aim of the current study is to highlight the clinical impact of the above abnormalities providing useful and practically applicable knowledge to interventional clinicians, thoracic and neck surgeons, since the vast majority of documented cases with an arteria lusoria are clinically silent and in most cases discovered incidentally...

We report a case of an accidental finding of an aberrant right subclavian artery diagnosed in an adult man during a 4-French coronary angiography performed by right transradial access, then confirmed by multi-slice computed tomography. Tips and tricks have been suggested to complete the 4-French procedure avoiding changing the vascular access.

Arteria lusoria is a rare aortic arch anomaly, with 1%-2% incidence. This image series documents the discovery of this anatomic variant in a patient who presented for primary percutaneous coronary intervention due to myocardial infarction. Awareness of this anomaly and subsequent rapid conversion to femoral access can reduce door-to-balloon time during primary PCI.

An asymptomatic elderly woman presented with a solitary right upper lobe mass revealed to be non-small cell lung cancer following routine surveillance post mastectomy. Upon review of CT with contrast in preparation for rigid bronchoscopy and right upper lobectomy, we noticed that the patient had a rare case of arteria lusoria. This is the presence of an aberrant right subclavian artery extending from the left side of the aortic arch, crossing posteriorly across the midline to supply the upper limb. We suggest that with a documented 100% diagnostic sensitivity on 64 multislice computed tomography, the presence of arteria lusoria within the posterior paratracheal fossa may cause life-threatening complications in the unaware during systematic lymph node dissection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)...

BACKGROUND: A nonrecurrent laryngeal nerve (NRLN) is a rare but potentially serious anatomical variant. Although the incidence is reported to be 0.3% to 1.3%, it carries a much higher risk of palsy during thyroid surgery. The objective of this study is to investigate the usefulness of computed tomography (CT) for preoperative identification and intraoperative neuromonitoring identification (IONM) of NRLN in thyroid cancer patients. METHODS: The preoperative neck CT scans from 1,574 patients who needed thyroid surgery were examined...

The most important abnormality of the aortic arch is arguably the presence of an aberrant right subclavian artery (arteria lusoria). If this vessel compresses the adjacent structures, several symptoms may be produced. The aim of the study is to present the morphological and clinical aspects of the aberrant right subclavian artery. Three different databases searched for a review of pertinent literature using strictly predetermined criteria. Of 141 cases, 15 were cadaveric and 126 were clinically documented. The gender distribution of the subjects was 55...

The great thoracic and cervical vessels come from the complex metameric system, formed of the dorsal and ventral aortas and aortic arches. From the branchial respiratory system of fish to the mammalian configuration, numerous changes have occurred in parallel with the evolution of cardiac septation, which imposes constraints on the vascular system. In addition, an important cell population is involved with the partioning of the arterial bulb: the cardiac neural crests originating from the head. The examination of abnormalities of arterial bulb septation, considered as neurocristopathies, within certain limitations, demonstrates an association of abnormal features with ancestral configurations...

We report a case of a 2-year-old girl with prenatal diagnosis of vascular ring composed of a right-sided aortic arch, a left ligamentum arteriosum, and a left subclavian artery (arteria lusoria sin) originating from a retroesophageal Kommerell's diverticulum, who was referred for surgery with symptoms related to local compression - severe dysphagia and respiratory disorders. Through the left posterolateral thoracotomy, a ligamentum arteriosum between the Kommerell's diverticulum and the left pulmonary artery was divided and because of left-handedness of the child a brachiocephalic trunk was reconstructed in the fashion of anastomosis of the left subclavian artery and the left common carotid artery, originating from the ascending aorta...

A one-step supraclavicular approach for the surgical treatment of the aberrant right subclavian artery is described in a case of dysphagia lusoria in a 38-year-old female. The approach allows for safe division of the arteria lusoria and its re-anastomosis to the common carotid artery while the patient benefits from a mini-invasive extrathoracic procedure. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12287 (J Card Surg 2014;29:519-522).
