Abstract

The subclavian steal syndrome is a well-recognized clinical and radiographic entity that involves the subclavian artery far more commonly than the right. Atherosclerotic stenoses are the most common underlying cause. Right subclavian stenosis with associated steal is markedly less common. Although an aberrant right subclavian artery is one of the most common anomalies of the great vessels, its association with and contribution to the right subclavian steal syndrome in adults has not been elucidated. In this report, we describe two cases of aberrant right subclavian artery associated with right subclavian steal syndrome.
