Pictorial essay: Coronary artery variants and anomalies.

Rahalkar AM, Rahalkar MD - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: CT coronary angiography has helped radiologists understand the variations and anomalies of the anatomy of the coronary arteries and, thus, to alert the cardiologist whenever such an anomaly is present.This can be of immense help to the clinician planning interventional procedures such as stenting, balloon dilatation, or graft surgery, particularly when there are secondary changes of calcification, plaque formation and stenosis.

LM trifurcation showing RI: Volume rendered (VRT) image reveals trifurcation of the LM into LAD, CX, and RI. This latter branch is considered by some as either a diagonal or an OM with a high origin

Figure 0001: LM trifurcation showing RI: Volume rendered (VRT) image reveals trifurcation of the LM into LAD, CX, and RI. This latter branch is considered by some as either a diagonal or an OM with a high origin

Mentions: The ramus intermedius (RI) is an artery arising between the left anterior descending artery (LAD) and the CX. Some call it a high diagonal (D) or a high obtuse marginal (OM) artery [Figure 1].
