Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital coronary artery abnormalities are rare and account for approximately 0.1 to 2% of congenital heart defects. They may pose significant risk of mortality or morbidity to the patient. The pediatrician and the pediatric cardiologist should be aware of their subtle but very serious presentations and diagnostic steps to be undertaken to pinpoint the diagnosis. Prevention of serious complications from these abnormalities can be achieved by making the appropriate diagnosis and performing timely surgical intervention. This review will discuss the most common congenital coronary artery abnormalities and their management.
