Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 37-year-old man presented with a three-week history of chest pain. Transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated a mitral valve prolapse and mild mitral insufficiency. Coronary angiography showed normal left main, circumflex, left anterior descending and right coronary arteries; however, the right ventricular branch of the right coronary artery had a separate ostium. Concomitant congenital heart abnormalities have been observed with coronary artery anomalies. Primary congenital coronary and valvular anomalies may have genetic heredity. In the present case, mitral valve prolapse was accompanied by a right ventricular coronary artery origin anomaly which, to the best of our knowledge, is the first report in the literature in which both anomalies presented together.
