Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital anomaly. We report an extremely uncommon variety of ALCAPA, in which the left coronary artery arose from the left pulmonary artery in a patient who presented with severe heart failure in early infancy. After ...

Bronchial artery origins are subject to a wide range of anatomic variations, of which interventional radiologists should be aware. The authors report a patient with angina in whom an anomalous bronchial artery originated from the sinus node branch of the right coronary artery, causing a coronary steal phenomenon. The patient's ...

Vascular anatomy has a strong influence on the choice of surgical approach. Anomalies of vascular patterns may explain uncharacteristic physical or clinical findings. We present a case of an anomalous peroneal artery not previously described. The anomalous anatomic pattern is the peroneal artery replacing the posterior tibial artery in the ...

We present two rare cases of anomalous vertebral artery (VA) with retroesophageal right subclavian artery. One patient had a right VA arising from the right common carotid artery (CCA), and a left VA originating from the third branch off the aorta. Both VAs ascended anteriorly to the transverse foramen of ...

Anomalous origin of the right or left coronary artery from the contralateral sinus of Valsalva is often asymptomatic, but many patients, particularly young ones, present with sudden death or myocardial ischemia without symptoms. The mechanism of sudden death in this entity is unclear and has not been fully evaluated. These ...

Anomalous coronary arteries occur in less than 2% of the general population. Most coronary anomalies are clinically asymptomatic. However some of them may present with chest pain, syncope, heart failure and sudden death. Acute myocardial infarction has been also described. Extravascular coronary compression results in dynamic obstruction which can cause ...

Anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery found in a symptomatic 9-year-old boy was initially treated with coronary artery bypass grafting using a left internal mammary artery anastomoses to the left anterior descending coronary artery, but resulted in coronary ischemia, likely from a steal phenomenon. Subsequent transection of the proximal ...

Right coronary arteries with anomalous origin (ARCA) may be associated with myocardial ischemia and sudden death. Selective catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of ARCA can be technically challenging due to their slit-like orifice and aortic intramural course with abrupt angulation. The 3DRCA guide catheter is a unique catheter with ...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery anomalies (CAAs) are currently undergoing profound changes in understanding potentially pathophysiological mechanisms of disease. Aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of anomalous origin and course of coronary arteries in consecutive symptomatic patients, who underwent cardiac 64-slice multidetector-row computed tomography angiography (MDCTA). METHODS: Imaging datasets ...
