Double aortic arch
Hi. . my daughter was diagnosed at 15 with a double aortic arch. . That has since been repaired. . However we are dealing with bronchiectasis of the right middle lobe. . Has anyone had lung issues because of their heart conditions?

Chronic mucousy cough since birth, congestion in sinuses, lungs. I was hoping she may have been micro aspirating her entire life due to her vascular ring. But her lungs havent improved since the heart surgery. They do not know if it is a result of her vascular ring or a pneumonia she had when she was 2. Daily inhalers, breathing treatments, airway clearance vest, sometimes antibiotics.. i was hoping maybe someone has known or has heard of this due to a DAA.
