Physiologic Evaluation of Anomalous Right Coronary Artery Stenosis

2014-08-27 03:13:20 | BioPortfolio


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 tomography has become more popular. It can cause myocardial ischemia, syncope and sudden cardiac death. Surgical repair is generally recommended for symptomatic patients. However, there is controversy concerning the proper evaluation and treatment strategy for patients without documented myocardial ischemia.

The stenotic lesion of anomalous origin of RCA will be assessed by fractional flow reserve (FFR).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.

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 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.

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.

Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
