SCA from the right sinus is the rarest coronary anomaly. We describe 2 cases: 1 with SCA type-1RI; 2 with SCA type-2RII-A. Appropriate and successful treatment (CABG in case-1; PTCA in case-2) was chosen relying on accurate morphological description provided by MDCT, in order to recognize all the possible mechanisms of myocardial ischemia.

Abstract

SCA from the right sinus is the rarest coronary anomaly. We describe 2 cases: 1 with SCA type-1RI; 2 with SCA type-2RII-A. Appropriate and successful treatment (CABG in case-1; PTCA in case-2) was chosen relying on accurate morphological description provided by MDCT, in order to recognize all the possible mechanisms of myocardial ischemia.
