Anomalous Origin of Right Coronary Artery from the Non-coronary Cusp Demonstrated by Echocardiography and CT Angiography
Certain coronary anomalies have been associated with sudden cardiac death. Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) from the posterior non-coronary aortic cusp is exceedingly rare. Through multimodality imaging, we present a young female with an anomalous RCA arising from the non-coronary cusp. Given the unobstructed origin and benign course, no intervention was recommended.
