Interarterial course of the right coronary artery: assessment with cardiac computed tomography and myocardial perfusion imaging.


Husmann, L; Valenta, I; Veit-Haibach, P; Alkadhi, H; Largiader, T; Kaufmann, P A (2008). Interarterial course of the right coronary artery: assessment with cardiac computed tomography and myocardial perfusion imaging. Clinical Nuclear Medicine, 33(5):335-336.

Abstract

A 50-year-old well-trained cyclist reported increasing brief episodes of chest pain over the last 8 years at maximum exercise during alpine bicycle training. Previous cardiac stress testing on a supine bicycle ergometer revealed nonspecific ST-T abnormalities. In June 2007, the patient was referred for computed tomography coronary angiography, which revealed a coronary anomaly, with the right coronary artery originating from the left coronary sinus and taking an interarterial course between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk. There were no atherosclerotic alterations in the coronary arteries. Subsequent bicycle exercise stress and myocardial perfusion imaging revealed no myocardial perfusion defect.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
