IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which a common arterial trunk is associated with aortic coarctation.

  • Image #1 is an anterior view illustrating the outward appearance of a pulmonary dominant common arterial trunk with an associated tubular narrowing or coarctation of the aortic arch between the left carotid and left subclavian arteries. Note the large arterial duct between the pulmonary component of the common trunk and the descending aorta. In Image #2 the common arterial trunk has been opened and is viewed anteriorly. The pulmonary component is dominant with the small aortic component marked with the black dots. The truncal valve consists of three leaflets and there is a muscular, subarterial ventricular septal defect (interventricular communication) with a postero-inferior muscular bar (caudal arm of the septomarginal trabeculation) separating the arterial from the atrioventricular valve. (yellow Y – septomarginal trabeculation)
