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.

LAD bridging: VRT image shows bridging of the LAD (arrows). The LAD can get submerged in the myocardium of the left ventricle for a variable length (as in this case) when it is termed as myocardial bridging

Figure 0005: LAD bridging: VRT image shows bridging of the LAD (arrows). The LAD can get submerged in the myocardium of the left ventricle for a variable length (as in this case) when it is termed as myocardial bridging

Mentions: It can be a normal variant. However, tunnelled LAD is reported in approximately 5% of field deaths among athletes[5] [Figure 5].
