Vascular ring anomalies are a relatively rare cardiovascular disorder of dogs characterized by abnormal persistent of the fetal aortic arch.

The most common vascular ring anomaly is a persistent right aortic arch with a left ligamentum arteriosum, however various other vascular anomalies resulting in tracheoesophageal compression have also been reported, such as persistent right aortic arch and left ligamentum arteriosum with a hypoplastic aberrant left subclavian artery[1].
