- A friend of mine recently had chest x-rays of her cat that suggested
a "redundant aorta".
We've done some searching and found a few online articles that seem to
suggest this is relatively common:
"Forty percent of cats 10 years or older were found to have the
horizontal cardiac alignment, and 28% had the redundant aorta."
However, we don't really understand what this is or what it means in
terms of her cat's health. I tried searching the board for "redundant
aorta" but didn't find any references.
Anyone have an explanation/information for us?
