Abstract

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a scarce and generally lethal congenital malformation. Patients with complete IAA scarcely reach adult age without previous surgical intervention. In this case, we presented a 40-year-old isolated IAA case with hypertension and angina pectoris. IAA just distal to left subclavian artery and markedly developed collateral circulation was demonstrated via cardiac catheterization (CC) and multi-slice computed tomography angiography (MSCT).
