Diagnosis of Variants of Single Right Coronary Trunk Using 64 Multidetector Computed Tomography

Free full text article: Diagnosis of Variants of Single Right Coronary Trunk Using 64 Multidetector Computed Tomography

Abstract
Single coronary anomalies are one of the rarest variants of coronary anatomy. Widespread use of coronary CT angiography has made it possible to diagnose these variants with increasing incidence. We report two cases of single right coronary trunk with different anatomic course of the left coronary artery; one anterior to the main pulmonary artery and the second between the main pulmonary artery and ascending aorta and then coursing within the interventricular septum.
