We present the case of a patient in anomalous origin of the left anterior descending coronary artery that caused myocardial ischemia and led to positive myocardial scintigraphic results. Coronary angiography showed that the left anterior descending coronary artery arose from the right coronary ostium-an anomaly that has been associated with chest discomfort-without atherosclerotic lesions. Left circumflex artery and the diagonal branches were arising from the left main coronary artery and the whole coronary tree were free of atherosclerosis. © 2006 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

BACKGROUND: Although the prevalence of coronary artery anomalies varies in different series, the precise population frequency is unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of all patients who underwent coronary angiography between January 2002 and August 2012 were retrieved, and 238 cases with coronary anomalies were evaluated. Unlike other studies, we compared several angiographic parameters (fluoroscopy time, number of images, and catheters used) in addition to frequency and sex data. RESULTS: The angiographic frequency of coronary artery anomalies was 0.94%. The most common coronary anomaly was a left anterior descending . . .-circumflex artery originating from separate ostia (0.29%). The second most common anomaly was a right coronary artery (RCA) originating from the left sinus of Valsalva (sV) (0.23%). Overall, coronary artery anomalies (1.28 vs. 0.80%; Daha fazlası Daha az

Dual left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) is a rare coronary anomaly and is divided into six subgroups in the literature according to the origin and course of the short and long branches of the anomalous artery. We present two distinct cases of dual LAD which are distinguished by two branches of equal length from their counterparts in the literature. Learning objective: In our cases a novel dual LAD variant is presented with two main branches of equal length and reaches the cardiac apex. Cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons should be aware of these variants to avoid misinterpretation of coronary angiography and intrao . . .perative complications. © 2013 Japanese College of Cardiology Daha fazlası Daha az
