    Default right sided aortic arch with vascular ring

    hi mums, i just had my 20 week scan and they told me my bub has a right sided aortic arch with vascular ring. it was a bit hard to understand, but they essentially told me it could be caused by a chromomosal abnormality (DiGeorge or Downs). I have been screened for downs as low risk and considering doing a NIPT to rule out DiGeorge.

    Has anyone here been told the same thing and found their child was fine when born? They told me there could be issues with breathing and into their child and adulthood. Has anyone had a bub with a right sided aortic arch with vascular ring that did not develop any problems?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hopefully they can monitor closely. If it were me I'd get the NIPT as a diagnosis would mean staff could be prepared for potential issues at birth.

    My son has bicuspid aortic valve and had no issues from it. His was picked up in his first year.
