Diagram: Double Aortic Arch

Drawing of a double aortic arch. The ascending aorta (Asc Ao) leads to an anterior left arch and posterior right arch that join to form the descending aort (Desc Ao). The arches encircle the posterior esophagus and anterior trachea. The ligamentum arteriosum joins the left arch to the pulmonary artery. Other abbreviation: MPA main pulmonary artery.
