|Anomalous coronary artery origin is a rare and unusual anomaly with an incidence of 0.17% on autopsy-reported cases. Patients with these anomalous coronary arteries may experience angina either due to atherosclerosis and occlusion or due to abnormal anatomy. Different imaging modalities such as echocardiography, coronary angiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance has been used to diagnose such anomalous coronary arteries. The management of patients with anomalous coronaries includes medical management, PCI, or surgical repair. Here, we report an interesting case of a 49 year-old patient who had undergone a challenging rescue percutaneous intervention for a significant lesion with an anterior myocardial infarction; both LAD and LCX originate from the right coronary sinus of valsalva. The RCA was free of significant atherosclerosis and was mildly atherosclerotic with diseased LCx and a 100% occlusion of proximal to mid LAD segment, which was successfully treated and drug-eluting stent was deployed and post-dilated with a non-compliant balloon. Patient was discharged without any complications and asymptomatic at a one-year follow up.|
