At thoracotomy left lower lobe lobectomy was done, aberrant artery
arising from thoracic aorta ligated and venous drainage into left pulmonary vein identified and transected.
On the contrary Van Cangh et al22 have documented an aberrant artery
as the cause for a significant failure having compared the presence or absence of the extraluminal obstruction which objectively differed with the study conducted by Gupta et al23.
studied the radiographic findings in 25 cases with pre-diagnosed aberrant artery
on CT scans.
lobectomy A CT arteriogram showed a single aberrant artery
arising from the anterior right lateral aspect of the thoracic aorta at the level of T10 supplying the right lower lobe pulmonary sequestration Patient 3 Chest X-ray--a vague Left lower Figure 3, opacity in the lower lobe lobectomy.
CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) revealed an aberrant artery
arising from the thoracic aorta and entering the left basal segments at the level of inferior pulmonary veins, (Figs.
During surgery, the inferior pulmonary ligament was carefully dissected and the aberrant artery
within it was not injured (Figure 2).
The aberrant artery
traversed a course posteriorly and supplied the body of the pancreas.
10) This is fortunate because manipulation of an aberrant artery
might cause a stroke.
When the left coronary artery arises from the right coronary artery or another anomalous position, the potential exists for impingement of the aberrant artery
Occasionally an accessory renal artery arising from the aorta or an aberrant artery
supplies the superior or the upper pole of the kidney without passing through the hilum.
We also review the literature on laterally displaced internal carotid arteries, and discuss their differentiation from a congenitally aberrant artery
Sometimes an accessory renal artery arising from the aorta or an aberrant artery
supplies upper or lower pole of the kidney without passing through the hilum.
