LMCA and RCA Arteries Arising from Their Respective Left Sinuses of Valsalvas and Right Sinuses of Valsalvas
Abstract

Congenital coronary anomalies have been extensively studied and documented in part due to risk of causing physiologic ischemia. Clinical symptoms can include chest pain, dyspnea, syncope, cardiomyopathy, and myocardial infarction. In addition, coronary anatomical anomalies are the second most common cause of sudden cardiac death in young athletes [1]. Despite having an incidence of only 1-2%, coronary anomalies can be a financial burden by increasing the need for greater surveillance, risk of surgical procedures, and also overall-mortality [1]. However, the wide variation in their presentation makes it difficult to assess and predict how and when certain variants can cause symptomatic complications. Anatomical variations can be classified based on three parameters: the sinusoids, the in situ vascular endothelial network and the coronary buds on aortic sinuses [1,2]. As shown in the conventional coronary anatomy includes the Left Main Coronary (LMCA) and the Right Coronary (RCA) arteries arising from their respective LeftSinuses of Valsalvas (LSV) and Right Sinuses of Valsalvas (RSV) [2]. Here, we describe a case where the entire coronary circulation arises from the RSV.
