Anomalous Origin of the Right Coronary Artery with Inter-Aorto-Pulmonary Course Highlighted by ECG-gated Cardiac CT Angiography

A 46-year-old male was referred to the echo laboratory for further investigations of a 6-months history with typical chest pain that is predictably exertional. His past medical history was largely unremarkable and so was his cardiac physical examination. Electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm, poor R wave progression in anterior precordial leads and small Q waves with isoelectric T waves in inferior leads (Figure 1). Transthoracic echocardiography revealed prominent basal inferior and mid inferior hypokinesis with reduced regional myocardial longitudinal strain ECG-gated cardiac CT angiography (CTCA) was done and revealed RCA arising from left aortic sinus separately of left coronary artery, with inter-aorto-pulmonary course and ostial-post-ostial part severe luminal narrowing at the takeoff portion.
