Right sided aortic arch
Hello,

My daughter was born in February of this year with Tracheo Esophageal Fistula/Esophageal Atresia.  She also was born with  a right sided aortic arch.  I know a lot about her esophagus, but no one can tell me the effects, if any, of a right sided aortic arch.  Her whole heart isn't backwards, just her arch.  Any information is welcome and needed.  A will deeply appreciate it!!

Dear Cindy,

there is no adverse prognosis associated with a right sided arcxh assuming there are not associated congenital cardiac abnormalities.

I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back.
