Abstract

Clearly, the most common obstructive disease resulting in myocardial ischemia in adults is atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, which often requires coronary artery bypass surgery or transcatheter stenting. A number of congenital lesions can also cause ischemic syndromes that can result in myocardial infarction and sudden death. The treatment options for these anatomic coronary variations are rarely coronary artery bypass, so they deserve our attention and review.
