Abstract

Anomalous origin of the left anterior descending coronary artery with associated congenital defects is very rare. An angiogram of a 47-year-old woman admitted for a ventricular septal defect closure revealed an anomalous left anterior descending coronary artery arising from the left posterior sinus of the pulmonary artery. During the surgical procedure, the origin of the left anterior descending coronary artery was closed with pledgetted polypropylene sutures through the pulmonary artery. The ventricular septal defect was closed with a patch through the right atrium, and the left anterior descending coronary artery was bypassed with the left internal mammary artery. © 2007 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
