Congenital Subclavian Steal Syndrome Associated With Heterotaxy Syndrome and Atrioventricular Septal Defect
An infant under follow-up evaluation since the fetal stage was detected to have subclavian steal syndrome (SSS) associated with heterotaxy syndrome and atrioventricular septal defect. Such a complex association has not been reported previously. Congenital SSS occurs as a result of a subclavian artery originating from the main pulmonary artery through the ductus instead of the aortic arch. In rare cases, as in the reported case, it may occur due to proximal segment atresia of the left subclavian artery.
