An anomalous origin of the left circumflex coronary artery that arises as a side branch of the right coronary artery from the right coronary sinus of Valsalva encircling the aortic annulus is usually an incidental finding. However, in patients undergoing aortic valve procedures, its existence can significantly complicate the surgical treatment. We report our operative strategy in patients with an anomalous left circumflex coronary artery, a bicuspid aortic valve morphology and different aortic… CONTINUE READING
