Interrupted Aortic Arch

It’s often the tiniest hearts that need the most help from the start. That’s why Nemours pediatric heart experts specialize in early detection and repair of congenital heart defects such as an interrupted aortic arch. An interrupted aortic arch occurs when the aorta does not fully develop and is separated into two, unconnected parts where a single arch would normally be formed. If your child has been diagnosed with interrupted aortic arch we’re here to ease your concerns, answer your questions, and give your child the best possible chance for a healthy future.
