Abstract

Multislice/multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) is now widely used for noninvasive assessment of coronary arteries, and it may sometimes reveal coronary anomalies. Detection of such anomalies may be relevant both during follow-up and for planning cardiac or coronary surgical/interventional procedures. These anomalies may be missed unless carefully sought. In this paper, we present the MDCT images of a first septal perforator branch originating from the left main coronary artery, which represents an extremely rare coronary anomaly. To the best
of our knowledge, this is the first case in the literature where MDCT images are presented.
