BACKGROUND Late presentation of abnormal origin of coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ACAPA) is uncommon compared with early presentation, which usually induces extended myocardial necrosis and severe heart failure. The late presentation is characterized by abundant development of intercoronary collaterals resulting in mild and rare symptoms, but nevertheless can cause sudden cardiac death. Our objective was to describe presentation, cardiovascular imaging methods for diagnosis and… CONTINUE READING
