Anomalous origin of right coronary artery from the left coronary sinus
in association with type A interrupted aortic arch
AbstractIn this case, we reported a 24-day-old infant with a rare combination of
the anomalous origin of coronary artery and the type A interrupted
aortic arch, who presented with significant shortness of breath. Besides
these anomalies, further cardiac examination including transthoracic
echocardiography and CT angiogram revealed ventricular septum defect,
patent foramen ovale and patent ductus arteriosus at the same time.
Surgical procedures including repair of ventricular septum defect,
ligation of patent ductus arteriosus, unroofing of right coronary artery
and end-to-side aortic anastomosis were performed to cure the infant.
This patient stayed in ICU for few days without any major complications
and discharged from hospital at the tenth day after surgery.
