Abstract

Woven coronary artery is extremely rare. It is characterised by thin channels arisingfrom the coronary artery and reanastamosis at the distal portion. A 62-year-oldman was diagnosed of coronary artery disease. Coronary angiography showed3-vessel coronary artery disease. The distal right coronary artery derived 3 twistingthin channels, and the inferior thin channel sprouted second-class thin channels,which then reanstomosed distally. He received off-pump coronary artery bypass.The present patient had woven coronary artery with a more complex configurationof thin channels different from the previously reported cases.
