Abstract

COşKUN, Elif; ALTıNAY, Levent; TEKIN, Anıl  and  TUTUN, Ufuk. Aberrant right subclavian artery (arteria lusoria) aneurysm with a Kommerell’s diverticulum. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2019, vol.18, e20180091.  Epub Mar 11, 2019. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1677-5449.009118.

The treatment options for aberrant right subclavian artery vary depending on the presence of Kommerell’s diverticulum. Because there is a tendency not to report mortalities of these rare cases in the literature, it is hard to reach a conclusion on treatments from the limited data on post-interventional results in these patients. We report our experience with a 67-year old patient with an aberrant right subclavian aneurysm with Kommerell’s diverticulum, diagnosed by chance.

Keywords : aberrant right subclavian artery; Kommerell’s diverticulum; vascular anomaly.
