Coronary anomalies are rare congenital abnormalities and are often associated with complex congenital heart diseases and manifest in infancy or childhood. Single coronary artery arising from the sinus of Valsalva supplying the entire heart is one of these congenital anomalies. The prevalence is reported to be approximately 0.3 to 2.0% of the general population, mostly clinically asymptomatic and with good prognosis. However, in some cases this anomaly can present as acute coronary syndrome in adults. Literature reports of patients with both a single coronary artery and an acute coronary syndrome are sparse, and percutaneous coronary interventions in such cases are technically challenging. We report a case of a patient with a single coronary artery suffering from an acute coronary syndrom who underwent complex bifurcational percutaneous intervention and provide a review of the literature.
