Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) syndrome is a rare congenital coronary artery anomaly. There are two types of ALCAPA syndrome: the infant type and the adult type, each of which has different manifestations and outcomes. Infants experience myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure, and approximately 90% die within the 1st year of life. Rarely, ALCAPA syndrome manifests in adults; it may be an important cause of sudden cardiac death… CONTINUE READING

Reversed flow from the left coronary artery into the main pulmonary artery may be seen at steady - state free - precession cine and fast cine phase - contrast MR imaging .
At MR imaging and multidetector CT angiography , findings include direct visualization of the left coronary artery arising from the main pulmonary artery .
