Coronary Artery Anomalous Origins in Patients with Congenital Heart Disease

  • Randy Ray Richardson


Evaluating the course of coronary arteries in patients with congenital heart disease can have important implications for future surgical interventions. We review examples of patients with congenital heart disease with coronary anomalies that have clinically significant impact (Figs. 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, and 6.6).
