Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital coronary artery anomalies are sporadically discovered in patients undergoing coronary angiography and in autopsy series. Although most anomalies are clinically insignificant, some may become causes of cardiovascular morbidities and mortality. Diagnosis is commonly made with conventional coronary artery angiography. The current development of modern cardiac computed tomography allows less invasive imaging of the coronary arteries and might provide additional anatomical and morphological information. Herein, we report our experience with computed tomography coronary angiography, describing 2 clinical cases of patients with symptomatic congenital coronary artery anomalies requiring cardiac surgery.
