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!!
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.
