Abstract: The prevalence of coronary artery anomalies is reported to be around 0.3-1 %. An anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) is a rare condition but may lead to myocardial ischemia and sudden death. Diagnosis is mainly made by conventional coronary arteriography. Nowadays, multislice computed tomography is a new noninvasive imaging technique with excellent spatial resolution which can detect the origin and course of an anomalous coronary vessel. Here we report on a 67-year-old woman with an anomalous o… Show more

“…25 Our case was diagnosed first by CCA, was then sent to us for CTA, and was published in the literature as a case report. 26 Computed tomography angiography demonstrated an RCA that originated from the main pulmonary artery and collateral circulation between the RCA and left coronary system. Contrast medium density was higher in the RCA than the pulmonary artery, which indicated collateral circulation and reversal of flow in the RCA toward the pulmonary artery, causing coronary steal.…”

“…Congenital anomalies of the coronary artery have various symptoms, including syncope, myocardial ischemia, and sudden cardiac death, that depend on the surrounding structural location around the origin and termination of the coronary artery[5][6][7]. Therefore, the origin and pathway of the anomalous coronary ar-Coronary angiography.…”

“…Coronary artery anomalies are defined as those angiographic findings in which the number, origin, course, and termination of these arteries are rarely encountered in the general population. [1][2][3] . An anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) from the left sinus is a very rare anomaly with incidence is 0.019% to 0.49% on coronary angiography.…”
