Dysphagia Lusoria Caused by an Aberrant Right Subclavian Artery
Dysphagia lusoria is an impairment of swallowing due to compression from an aberrant right subclavian artery arteria lusoria. Most patients with aberrant right subclavian arteries do not have symptoms. Some present with mild dysphagia, while a small minority have a severe enough disturbance in swallowing that leads to inability to swallow and severe nutritional problems. In children, the most common presentations are stridor and recurrent chest infections, may be due to their tracheal softening comparing to adult population.
Compression of the esophagus by the aberrant right subclavian artery can be exacerbated by atherosclerosis or aneurysmal dilatation. Chest radiographs can demonstrate enlargement of the superior mediastinum. Barium study of the esophagus may show the indentation on the posterior esophageal wall by the artery.
