Single coronary artery and left ventricle non compaction
- Dimitrov, V. Groudeva
Coronary anomalies are often detected during diagnostic angiographies mainly as incidental findings, frequently with benign prognosis. Single coronary artery, supplying the whole myocardium is a rare anomaly (0,024% out of the total population) and, according to Lipton et al. in 40% could be combined with other cardiac anomalies . A clinical case of a 44 years old male with atrium fibrillation is presented. Ultrasound detected atriomegaly and left ventricle non compaction proven by computed tomography. Computer tomography coronarography finds a single coronary artery arising from the right coronary sinus – R-III-A according Lipton classification. Cardiac computed tomography reveals precisely the morphology of the anomaly.
