Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and anomalous origin of the coronary arteries are important causes of sudden cardiac death in the young, for which several diagnostic imaging modalities are currently available. We report the case of a young sudden cardiac death survivor in whom the unusual coexistence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and anomalous origin of the left circumflex artery was demonstrated using 64-slice computed tomography.
