Abstract

Anomalous origin of the left circumflex coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva is a relatively common anatomical variation. Here, we report the case of a 45 year-old male patient with a history of diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia and smoking whounderwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention of the left anterior descending artery in lieu of anterior wall myocardial infarction where dual left circumflex coronary artery was diagnosed angiographically, the first arising from the left main artery in the usual fashion, and the second in the form of an obtuse marginal branch coming from the large diagonal branch.
