Truncus arteriosus Type IV is a rare congenital cardiac malformation characterized by agenesis of the pulmonary arteries. Pulmonary perfusion is ensured by bronchial arteries. One common arterial trunk arises from both ventricles and systemic pulmonary and coronary arteries originate from this common vessel. Survival is rare without surgical correction. We report a case of uncorrected truncus arteriosus Type IV in a 28-year-old primigravid woman who underwent caesarean section

Abstract

Truncus arteriosus Type IV is a rare congenital cardiac malformation characterized by agenesis of the pulmonary arteries. Pulmonary perfusion is ensured by bronchial arteries. One common arterial trunk arises from both ventricles and systemic pulmonary and coronary arteries originate from this common vessel. Survival is rare without surgical correction. We report a case of uncorrected truncus arteriosus Type IV in a 28-year-old primigravid woman who underwent caesarean section
