Abstract

Knowledge of the anatomy of the aortic arch, and its variations, is paramount in endovascular interventions involving the aorta, especially in cases of modified grafts. We conducted a pilot study to assess the aortic arch anomalies in the Omani population, after noticing several incidental findings of aortic arch anomalies, to assess whether said anomalies are present at larger prevalence in the Omani population.
