Dissection of Arteria Lusoria during Transradial PCI: A Rare Complication revealed and followed by Multidetector CT

Abstract

Though the radial artery is an ideal site of access for coronary percutaneous interventions (PCI), anatomical variations may render this procedure more challenging. An aberrant right subclavian artery (arteria lusoria) arising from the descending aorta is an uncommon congenital variant that occurs in about 0.2–1.7% of the population. In such cases, the… (More)
