Successful percutaneous coronary intervention with stent implantation in anomalous right coronary arteries arising from the left sinus of valsalva: a report of two cases.

Journal Article

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in an anomalous right coronary artery arising from the left sinus of valsalva can be technically challenging because of difficulty in selectively cannulating the vessel. We present two cases of successful stent implantation in an anomalous right coronary artery arising from the left sinus of valsalva. In both cases, we used an oversized 6 Fr Judkins left guiding catheter, which provided excellent angiographic visualization and guide support for stent delivery.
