ABSTRACT
The authors report a case of aortic kinking associated with abnormalities of the size of aortic arch vessels. The diagnostic aid of hemodynamic and angiographic techniques is emphasized. The possibility that aortic kinking and the abnormalities of aortic arch vessels may be etiologically related is suggested.
