Objective: The impact of prenatal screening on contemporary operative outcomes and functional alleviation during pediatric Vascular Ring Surgery (VRS) is analysed in this research. Methods:All patients who had surgical treatment of an isolated VR at the Texas Children’s Hospitalbetween 1996 and 2018were included in the study. Patients who simultaneously underwent intracardiac repair were disqualified. Other congenital cardiac conditions, clinical symptomatology, contemporary surgical intervention, perioperative outcome, reoperation rates, functional alleviation, and complications were all examined in the data analysis.To examine the data for this investigation, we employed SPSS 13.0.Results: 148 participants were chosen for analysis. Of the 148, 72(48.6%)have a Double Aortic Arch (DAA), 69(47.2%) have a ligamentum and a normal left subclavian artery or Right Aortic Arch (RAA) with a left-sided ductus, 5 (2.7%)have an RAA, Left Descending Aorta (LDA) and 2(1.3%) had RAA, Left Ligamentum Arteriosum (LLA), mirror-image branching. Right aortic arch vascular ring(RAAVR) aregeneral than Double Aortic Arch Vascular Ring (DAAVR): 31 patients had the earlier, with a frequency of 5.7 per 10,000 live births, whereas 6 patients had the latter, with an incidence of 1.1 per 10,000 live births (p = 0.0001).Conclusion: VRs are a prevalent form of congenital cardiovascular abnormality, especially when they affect the right aortic arch. Additionally, prenatal screening reveals a significant percentage of VRs.
