Abdallah, MD, found that if three of your coronary arteries or your left main coronary artery
are blocked, CABG will lead to fewer adverse events and a better quality of life during the next five years compared with angioplasty and stenting.
Methods: A total of 275 patients with coronary artery
disease and 296 healthy control subjects were collected between January 2013 and November 2014.
The first cases of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery
from the pulmonary artery were described by Brooks in 1885, (3) and since then only 100 cases have been reported.

The right coronary artery
originating from the aorta was visualized as tortuous and enlarged and the left coronary artery
could not be visualized completely (Figure 3).
Right coronary artery
(RCA) originating from left coronary sinus or proximal portions of left coronary arteries or left coronary system originating from right coronary sinus constitute the major proportion of SCA anomalies.
The 40% of single coronary artery
anomaly cases are associated with congenital heart diseases such as Fallot tetralogy, transposition of great arteries, persistent truncus arteriosus, and pulmonary atresia (2).
Another 73 of the heart attack deaths resulted from clotting due to rupture of fatty plaques or erosion of fibrous plaques inside a coronary artery
Dietary changes in the general population aimed at preventing coronary artery
disease accounted for only about 25 percent of the drop between 1980 and 1990, said the study's lead author, Dr.
Stentys is developing the world's first second-generation dedicated drug-eluting stent for treatment of blocked coronary artery
bifurcations so that hundreds of thousands of patients might avoid open-chest surgery.
INTRODUCTION: Congenital coronary artery
anomalies are rare conditions which can be clinically silent.
