Dextrocardia with situs inversus is a rare cardiac anomaly, and the incidence of ischemic heart disease is the same as the general population. In most of these patients, interventionalists may encounter technical difficulties while handling guiding catheters and acquiring more back-up forces. We describe a case of successful anatomical right coronary intervention with Ikari left guiding catheter in a patient with situs inversus.
