Abstract/OtherAbstract:
INTRODUCTION: The objective of this case report was to illustrate the diagnostic and intervention approach of anomalous right coronary artery (RCA). CLINICAL PICTURE: A 60-year-old man presented with acute inferior myocardial infarction. Cardiac catheterisation revealed an anomalous RCA arising from the posterior coronary sinus as the infarct-related artery. TREATMENT: Ad hoc percutaneous coronary intervention with stent implantation was performed using a few technical modifications. OUTCOME: Good angiographic result was achieved within 90 minutes, with 260 mL of contrast used. CONCLUSION: A high index of suspicion and logical diagnostic and intervention approach are required for the proper management of anomalous RCA.
