Mitchell J, Lemaire A, Henaine R, Metton O, Ninet J. Reimplantation of left coronary artery from pulmonary artery in a 65-year-old. Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann. 2014;.
Anomalous left coronary artery to the pulmonary artery is a rare pathology with a mortality rate of 90% in the first year of life, directly related to left ventricular function and coronary perfusion, although several adult cases have been reported. Surgical correction consists of ligation of the anomalous left coronary artery associated with coronary artery bypass grafting. We describe the exceptional case of a 65-year-old woman who underwent reimplantation of the left coronary artery in the anatomical position without bridging.
