INTRODUCTION Cannulation of the coronary sinus (CS) is a prerequisite for left ventricular (LV) pacing and certain ablation procedures. The detailed regional anatomy for the coronary veins and potential anatomic causes for difficulty with these procedures has not been established. METHODS AND RESULTS Therefore, we performed macroscopic measurements in 620 autopsied hearts (mean age 60 ± 23 years, 44% female). The CS was preserved for analysis in 96%. Sixty-three percent had a Thebesian valve… CONTINUE READING
