Cervical aortic arch is a rare congenital anomaly. We present a case of left-sided cervical aortic arch, found in a patient with mitral regurgitation, mitral stenosis, and a regurgitant bicuspid aortic valve. There was atypical obstruction proximally within the arch. The obstructive segment was resected, and corrected by performing an end-to-side anostomosis. Mitral valvoplasty was performed in the same surgical procedure. To the best of our knowledge, a cervical arch has not previously been described with such atypical obstruction, and in association with multiple lesions involving the left heart.
