  • Type B - large duct with window like structure which is very short in length.
  • Type C - tubular duct without any constriction.
  • Type D - complex duct with multiple constrictions.
  • Type E - elongated duct with constriction remote from the edge of the trachea (as viewed on lateral angiography).
