Abstract

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a rare severe congenital heart defect defined as a complete loss of luminal and anatomic continuity between ascending and descending aorta. It is important that we made a good diagnosis and accurate evaluation of their morphologic conditions before a heart operation. We presented an 18-year-old girl of interrupted IAA diagnosed by multi-slice computed tomography angiography.
