Multimodal imaging for Anomalous aortic origin of the coronary arteries
with myocardial infarction: a case report
Anomalous aortic origin of the coronary arteries (AAOCA) is a rare
congenital abnormality involving the origin and course of coronary
arteries and present with diverse clinical manifestations in patients.
We describe a 12-year-old male patient whose anomalous left coronary
artery (LCA) originated from the right aortic sinus of Valsalva (RASV),
accompanied with myocardial infarction. He was diagnosed by multimodal
imaging including invasive coronary angiography (ICA), computed
tomography angiography (CTA) and transthoracic echocardiography (TTE),
providing morphologic and functional information of the abnormal
coronary arteries. The patient was corrected with surgery after the
preparation of multimodal imaging.
