Percutaneous coronary intervention to left anterior descending artery/right coronary artery bifurcation: this is not a typo! A case report.

Summary of "Percutaneous coronary intervention to left anterior descending artery/right coronary artery bifurcation: this is not a typo! A case report."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
