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 descending artery (LAD), is extremely rare. We report the case of an anomalous origin of the RCA from the mid LAD with a significant bifurcation lesion, in the setting of an acute coronary syndrome, endangering both the RCA and LAD territories.

Anomalies of the coronary arteries represent rare congenital disorders, which are characterized by a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations. Usually, they are asymptomatic, but sometimes they cause ...
The prognosis of patients with coronary artery disease is mainly related to the extent of myocardium at risk. Proximal coronary arteries, especially the proximal left anterior descending coronary arte...
The fenestration of a coronary artery hematoma is a therapeutic option in case of a life-threatening spontaneous coronary artery dissection, if the conservative treatment is not feasible. Here we pres...
A patient who presented with acute inferior-right ventricular (RV) ST-segment elevation (STE) myocardial infarction (MI) is described. Coronary angiography showed a mid-right coronary artery (RCA) occ...
: We describe the case of a patient referred to our cathlab due to anterior ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. Through the right radial artery route, after multiple attempts to cannulate the ...

The primary objective of this study is to assess the accuracy, efficacy, and durability of the OpSens Medical OptoWire Deux pressure wire in the assessment of angiographically intermediate...
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...
This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...
Percutaneous coronary intervention with a sirolimus-coated stent compared to minimally invasive bypass surgery in patients with isolated proximal left anterior descending coronary arteries...
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.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
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.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
