IPCCC Term COMMON ARTERIAL TRUNK WITH AORTIC DOMINANCE AND BOTH PULMONARY ARTERIES ARISING FROM TRUNK
IPCCC Code 09.01.14
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which a common arterial trunk is associated with an unobstructed aortic arch and both pulmonary arteries arise from the common arterial trunk.
The images demonstrate a common arterial trunk with separate origin of both the right and left pulmonary arteries. Image #1 is viewed from an anterior and slightly superior position with the anterior aspect of the arterial trunk incised and folded forward. The right and left pulmonary arteries clearly arise separately from the posterior aspect of the common trunk. The left coronary orifice arises slightly above the sinotubular junction and the right coronary orifice is not seen. Image #2 shows the posterior aspect of the common arterial trunk with separate origin of the right and left pulmonary arteries. The aortic arch extends leftward, and is unobstructed with the brachiocephalic arteries branching normally from the aortic arch.
