Antegrade flow in Anomalous Left Coronary Artery from Pulmonary Artery: Clinical implications.

Sedky Y, Hosny H, Donya M, AbdElsalam S, Yacoub M - Glob Cardiol Sci Pract (2014)

Bottom Line: Anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital anomaly that usually presents in childhood.This ischemia results from retrograde flow into the pulmonary artery which can act as a coronary steal.We here report antegrade flow detected in ALCAPA caused by severe pulmonary hypertension.

ABSTRACT
Anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital anomaly that usually presents in childhood. It results in left ventricular (LV) ischemia with resulting LV dysfunction. This ischemia results from retrograde flow into the pulmonary artery which can act as a coronary steal. We here report antegrade flow detected in ALCAPA caused by severe pulmonary hypertension. Anatomic correction of ALCAPA is the preferred surgical option and should be performed as early as possible.
