Anomalous right coronary artery: A rare cause of recurrent syncopal attacks [Anormal Sağ Koroner Arter: Rekürren Senkop Atağının Nadir Bir Nedeni]
MetadataShow full item record
Anomalous origin of the coronary artery is a rare anomaly and does not gener-ally lead to myocardial infarction and ventricular tachycardia. We report an un-common case of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery originating from the left sinus of Valsalva with ventricular tachycardia and myocardial ischemia. A 42-year-old male was transferred from an external facility due to syncope and documented episodes of ventricular tachycardia preceding syncope. MPS showed small ischemic area in the inferior wall. Coronary CT angiography confirmed that RCA was originating from the left coronary aortic sinus with a separate ostium from the LMCA and coursing between the aorta and the pulmonary trunk. After consulting with cardiothoracic surgeons, the decision to perform corrective sur-gery was made. A successful correction surgery was performed by the surgeons, and the patient was asymptomatic after surgery. © 2016, Journal of Clinical and Analytical Medicine. All rights reserved.
