ABSTRACT Coronary artery anomalies are congenital changes in their origin, course, and/or structure. Intercoronary communication is a very rare subset with uni- or bidirectional blood flow between two or more coronary arteries. We present the case of a 70-year-old male patient with acute coronary syndrome, and his coronary angiography incidentally showed a surprising and very rare communication between the left circumflex and right coronary arteries.
ABSTRACT Anomalous coronary arteries are rare. The origin of the left main coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva is related to some events, such as syncope, arrhythmias, angina, among others. By and large, its diagnosis is incidentally made by coronary angiography. The presence of this type of anomaly may hinder percutaneous approach of the coronary lesions. The authors describe a case of left main coronary artery originating from the right sinus of Valsalva, associated to disease of multiple […]
ABSTRACT Single coronary artery is a rare congenital anomaly of the coronary arteries and may be associated with sudden cardiac death. We report a case of single coronary artery associated with multivessel atherosclerotic coronary disease that was successfully treated with percutaneous coronary interventions with drug-eluting stents.
ABSTRACT Background: This study aimed to determine the correspondence between the anterior dot sign at the angiography and the malignant interarterial course, defined by the gold standard coronary angiography (angio-CT), in individuals with right coronary artery originating in the contralateral sinus of Valsalva. Methods: This was an observational, retrospective, and single-center study. All individuals who had both coronary angio-CT and invasive coronary angiography (ICA), and a diagnosis of right coronary artery anomaly originating in the contralateral sinus of Valsalva were […]
