Figure 3: Cardiac catheterization. Panel A. Anterior-posterior projection. A short and large vessel (asterisk) arises proximal to brachiocephalic artery (which is not filled in by contrast, yet) and connects ascending aorta and pulmonary trunk, leading to a significant left-to right shunt. Panel B. Aortography in lateral projection. Contrast flows directly in the abnormal vascular connection (asterisk), which originates beneath brachiocephalic artery (arrow-heads) and has anterior and inferior course to pulmonary artery
