Anomalous aortic origin of the left main coronary artery arising from the right coronary sinus with a trans-septal course are rare and pose surgical challenges not addressed by current techniques. Coronary artery bypass grafting though a plausible solution, has an unacceptably high incidence of graft failure due to competitive flow. We describe a novel trans-conal approach to effectively unroof trans-septal left main coronary artery.

Anomalous left main coronary artery (LMCA) with an intraconal course is a relatively rare form of anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery (AAOCA) from the wrong sinus of Valsalva. There is curren...
Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery (LCA) from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital heart disease. Retrograde flow from the right coronary artery (RCA) through natural collatera...
Anomalous origin of the left anterior descending coronary artery from the pulmonary artery is a rare variant of anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery from the pulmonary artery. We report o...
Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) is a rare congenital anomaly. A single coronary artery arising from the left sinus of Valsalva, with the RCA originating from the left anterior desc...
To examine the changes in left ventricular (LV) global longitudinal strain (GLS), using two-dimensional speckle tracking analysis, after left anterior descending (LAD) unroofing, in myocar...
Spontaneous resynchronization of dyskinetic segments of the left ventricle occurs after coronary bypass surgery in adults and has been shown in some children. It is, however, unknown what ...
The anomalous origin of right coronary artery (RCA) is a rare coronary anomaly. Recently, the detection of this anomaly has been more frequent as the use of cardiac multidetector computed ...
Unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) stenting, offering restoration of a native flow to left coronary artery, is the subject of intense investigations as a potential alternative t...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate long-term outcome of treatment(percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary-artery bypass graft) in unprotected left main coronary artery stenosi...
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
