Coronary artery anomalies are seen in about 1.3% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. However, the dual type of left anterior descending (LAD) artery is a rare form of coronary artery anomaly. There are four types of dual LAD; type IV describes the anomaly of a rudimentary LAD artery terminating in the mid-portion of the anterior interventricular sulcus, and the presence of another LAD originating from the right coronary artery and continuing to the anterior interventricular sulcus.
