ArticleAnomalous Origin of Left Coronary Artery from Right Sinus of Valsalva: A Case Report
Joseph Haddad* , Rima Chaddad ,
Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries are a cause of sudden cardiac death. Of the known anatomic variants, anomalous origination of a coronary artery from an opposite sinus of Valsalva (ACAOS) remains a major clinical issue and a challenging condition to treat. We present a case of 82 years old female patient with chest pain, who underwent a diagnostic coronary angiography. She was found to have an extremely rare anomalous coronary origin (Left main coronary artery arising from the right sinus of valsalva). The patient was successfully treated conservatively.
