Abstract

ECHAVARRIA-PINTO, Mauro; RODRIGUEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Engels; MACIAS, Enrico  and  KIMURA-HAYAMA, Eric. Extremely rare single right coronary artery: multidetector computed tomography findings. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2012, vol.82, n.2, pp. 195-196. ISSN 1405-9940.

Coronary anomalies are rare, with a reported prevalence of 1.3% among patients who undergo coronary angiography. The great majority of coronary artery anomalies are incidental findings and are not clinically significant, but in some cases, may be responsible for angina, syncope, arrhythmias or even sudden death. In the following case, we describe coronary CT angiography findings of one of the rarest coronary anomalies. Lipton R-I type single right coronary artery has only been previously reported in very few occasions and has been seen in only 0.0007% of the population.

Keywords : Coronary anomalies; Multidetector computed tomography; Single right coronary artery; Mexico; Anomalías coronarias; Tomografía computada multicorte; Arteria coronaria derecha única; México.
