Anatomical study of the coronary vessels and study of their variants
The aim of the present dissertation is the anatomical study of the coronary vessels and their variants. The health sector is one of the most important sectors of a society that highlights its welfare and social character.
Variants of coronary arteries have been adequately studied. All of this has a positive effect on invasive heart surgery, which results in better treatment in patients’ lives.
We also studied a case of an incidental finding of an anomalous left circumflex coronary artery arising from the main pulmonary artery in an asymptomatic child of nine years old, who was refered in hospital for orthopaedic surgery. The patient had a background of spontaneous VSD (ventricular septal defect) closure, in first year of life. Clinical suspicion for congenital heart disease was made because of the appearance of collaterals in cardiac ultrasound. Cardiac catheterization with coronary angiography showed anomalous origin of the left circumflex artery (LCX) from the pulmonary artery and its retrograde filling from left anterior descending and right coronary arteries via collaterals. Surgical intervention was recommended and performed.
