Background Coronary artery anomalies encompass a clinically and anatomically variable spectrum including physiological variants and pathophysiologically relevant anomalies. The majority of the variants has no hemodynamic relevance and is often detected accidentally. The recognition of the rare and relevant anomalies that cause either relevant shunt volumes leading to myocardial ischemia or ventricular tachyarrhythmias with the risk of sudden cardiac death is of major importance. Methods This review is based on a literature search in PubMed conducted using the key words "coronary artery" and/or "anomaly" and/or "anomalous origin" and/or "myocardial bridging" and/or "coronary artery fistula" and/or "Bland-White-Garland" and/or "ALCAPA"...

We report the imaging findings of an uncommon coronary vascular termination anomaly, with fistula to the pulmonary artery. This 70 year old female patient presented unstable angina, showing a coronary artery fistula depicted in coronary angiogram from the left coronary to the pulmonary artery, with no significant atherosclerotic pathology. Due to development of ventricular tachycardia in stress echocardiogram examination, she was proposed for coronary fistula closure. Coronary CT was performed for procedure planning and allowed the identification of a second unsuspected fistula from the right coronary to the right pulmonary artery...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial bridging (MB) is a congenital anomaly in which a segment of a major epicardial coronary artery courses through the myocardium. This anomaly can lead to myocardial ischemia, arrhythmia, and even death. The effectiveness of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) in the detection of MB and its morphological features, and the accuracy of invasive coronary angiography (ICA) in the evaluation of systolic compression have been shown in some prior studies. OBJECTIVES: The present study aimed to evaluate the correlation between the depth and the length of MB as determined using CCTA, and the degree of luminal narrowing of the involved tunneled segment as calculated using the ICA...

Congenital coronary artery abnormalities may cause sudden death, particularly in athletes. Two siblings, aged 10 and 9 years, respectively, were diagnosed with anomalous origin of the right coronary artery on multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT). The right coronary artery arose from the left coronary cusp, and was wedged between the aorta and pulmonary artery. This was also noted on cardiac ultrasonography (UCG), but in general this might not be seen on electrocardiography at rest. Although the surgical indications are unclear in the case of unproven ischemia, early recognition of the condition may reduce risk of the cardiac events during exercise...

OBJECTIVE: Coronary artery anomaly (CAA) is a remarkable etiological factor for sudden cardiac death in young adults. The incidence of CAA is unknown, with most reliable data available based on postmortem/angiography investigations. This study aimed to assess the prevalence of different forms of coronary anomalies, and to investigate the relationships between demographic data and occurrence of CAA. METHODS: A total of 2401 consecutive patients (1805 men; mean age, 56 ± 11...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery anomalies are a heterogeneous group of congenital disorders presenting with a wide spectrum of symptoms, ranging from vague chest pain to sudden cardiac death. Despite available data, there is no consensus about the classification, nomenclature, and outcomes of coronary anomalies in the normally connected heart. In this study, we aimed to investigate clinical and angiographic characteristics of coronary arterial anomalies, as well as the frequency of atherosclerotic involvement in anomalous coronaries, diagnosed at a tertiary referral centre...

Woven coronary artery is a rare anomaly characterized by thin channels arising from the coronary artery and reanastomosing at the distal arterial segment. To our knowledge, no data are available currently on the histologic structure of the woven segment. A 39-year-old man presented with sudden atypical chest pain while he was practicing cycling. During the transfer of the patient to the hospital, he suffered cardiac arrest. After 50 min of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the patient could not return to sinus rhythm and died...

OBJECTIVES: Minimally invasive cardiac surgery has recently become widespread. The aim of this study is to analyse the feasibility of a minimally invasive approach for coronary artery fistula (CAF) correction. METHODS: From February 2001 to June 2014, 49 patients in our centre underwent minimally invasive CAF correction without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The mean age was 21.18 ± 11.24 years (range, 5 months to 64 years). Patients with cardiac anomalies who underwent CAF correction and those who underwent CAF via the minimally invasive approach with CPB were excluded...

INTRODUCTION: Myocardial bridging (MB) is a congenital variant of the coronary artery in which a portion of the epicardial coronary artery takes an intramuscular course. Although it is considered a benign anomaly, it may lead to such complications as myocardial ischaemia, acute coronary syndrome, coronary spasm, exercise-induced dysrhythmias or even sudden death. MB may be related to increased inflammatory and atherosclerotic processes. This study was conducted with the aim of evaluating the relationship between neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and MB...

Congenital coronary sinus (CS) stenosis is a rare malformation. We present five patients with congenital coronary sinus stenosis (CSS) and identified another nine cases reported in the literature between 1980 and 2016. Congenital CSS may be associated with an unroofed CS, a coronary artery-coronary sinus fistula, or other cardiac anomalies. Congenital CSS may be detected by echocardiography, multidetector row computed tomography, and intra-operative evaluation. Congenital CSS can occur at the ostium, lumen, and origin of the CS...

Coronary artery fistula is a rare anomaly; large fistulae may result in myocardial ischemia from coronary steal. We present the case of a 73-year-old male who presented with exertional angina; imaging demonstrated severe coronary artery disease and a large coronary artery fistula. Ligation of the fistula resulted in severe right ventricular failure and cardiogenic shock. After reestablishing flow to the fistula, the patient recovered. We speculate that the ischemia-induced angiogenesis from the congenitally present fistula made what may have otherwise been an innocent fistula into an important nutritive supply, which remained important despite distal revascularization...

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (Bland-White-Garland syndrome - BWG) is a serious congenital cardiac anomaly leading to myocardial ischemia with severe heart failure. Immediate surgical correction is the treatment of choice, and the risk of postoperative complications depends on the degree of myocardial injury. The authors present two cases of infants with BWG, in whom long-term (175 and 26 days) left ventricular assistance with a Berlin Heart device was used, resulting in successful weaning from the support and subsequent hospital discharge...

PURPOSE: Myocardial bridge is a congenital anomaly with a markedly variable reported incidence on autopsy (4.7%-86%), likely related to geographical regions. Our previous retrospective study showed a prevalence of 0.8%, which we doubted to be the true one in the examined sample of the Serbian population. To assess the importance of the phenomenon we conducted a 2-year prospective study at the same institution. METHODS: Ninety-six cadaver hearts from adult individuals of both genders (51 men, 45 women) who died from natural causes underwent special dissection...

BACKGROUND: Anomalous origin of left coronary artery from pulmonary artery is a very rare disease with incidence of one every 300,000 live births. It has a high mortality of 80% in the first year of life. This observational study summarized our experience using the technique of subclavian arterial bypass without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) for treatment of this coronary anomaly in pediatric population. The study aims to revive an earlier technique, with modifications, as an alternative to the existing coronary translocation...

Coronary artery anomalies are often discovered incidentally during cardiac catheterization or computed tomography coronary angiography and may involve the affected coronary artery origin and its course. Coronary artery anomalies are associated with congenital heart disease. The affected coronary arteries may have an unusual high take off origin, origin from contralateral or non-coronary sinus, origin from the pulmonary artery, single coronary system or coronary artery fistula.

Coronary artery anomalies include anomalies of origin, termination, structure or course. Coronary artery fistulae (CAF) are classified as abnormalities of termination and are considered a major congenital anomaly. A coronary artery fistula involves a sizable communication between a coronary artery, bypassing the myocardial capillary bed and entering either a chamber of the heart (coronary-cameral fistula) or a great vessel. Bilateral coronary artery fistula, are a rare variant. We describe a bilateral CAF with angina and significant coronary artery disease requiring percutaneous coronary intervention...
