A patient with exercise-induced ischemia
We report a patient with exercise-induced ischemia due to an anomalous origin of the RCA from the left sinus of Valsalva. This case report emphasizes the value of multi-detector CT coronary angiography as a useful tool in the diagnosis and management of these patients.
Despite the currently available scarce literature data, it is also demonstrated that stenting is an effective, feasible and safe alternative for surgery in these patients.
