Abstract

Aberrant subclavian artery (arteria lusoria) is a rare congenital anomaly that usually does not produce symptoms. Symptomatic patients require surgical intervention. The operative approach to correct this condition has been controversial. Herein, we describe surgical approaches to the aberrant right subclavian artery.
