IPCCC Term COMMON ARTERIAL TRUNK (TRUNCUS ARTERIOSUS) WITH PULMONARY DOMINANCE AND INTERRUPTED AORTIC ARCH
IPCCC Code 09.01.18
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which a common arterial trunk is associated with an interrupted aortic arch.
This anterior view illustrates single outlet of the heart via a pulmonary dominant common arterial trunk with an interrupted aortic arch (double headed red arrow) between the left carotid and left subclavian arteries. Both carotid arteries branch from the short segment of ascending aorta. The yellow star marks the right subclavian artery which arises distally from the arch, eventually taking a retroesophageal course (not shown). Note the pulmonary component of the common trunk continues through a large arterial duct to reach the descending aorta.
