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 vessels. After discussing the case with the patient and family, the cath lab team performed a successful percutaneous coronary intervention.
