Anomalous origin of all three coronary arteries from right aortic sinus/Uc koroner arterin sag aortik sinusten anormal cikisi.

Anomalous origin of all three coronary arteries from separate ostia within right aortic sinus is rarely encountered anomaly. A 60-year-old-man was admitted to our hospital with typical angina. Coronary angiogram revealed that all three coronary arteries arose from right coronary cusp. Right coronary artery arose from corresponding aortic sinus. But, left circumflex coronary artery took a course behind the atrioventricular valves and totally occluded proximally with TIMI 1 flow (Fig. 1). In addition, left anterior descending coronary artery coursed on the anterior wall of the right ventricular outflow tract (Fig. 2). The patient was remained mildly symptomatic after medical treatment at six-month follow-up.
