Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary angioplasty can provide excellent means of revascularization of anomalous coronary arteries. Successful application of angioplasty to these vessels requires angiographic knowledge of their course, structure and appropriate equipment selection. Advancement of stent delivery systems in such cases requires good support with the possibility of selective cannulation and deep engagement of the guiding catheter. We report a case of stent placement in an anomalous circumflex artery arising from the right coronary artery.
